There is nothing more annoying than getting a flat tyre as a result of a puncture. Tyre punctures can be caused by a number of things, like driving over a pothole or hitting a kerb. Tyres can also be punctured by sharp objects such as nails, stones or glass. Such objects can make a small hole in the tyre which can lead to a slow puncture.
The good news is that about half of all flat tyres caused by a puncture can be repaired, avoiding the need of a replacement tyre!
All tyre repairs are, however governed by strict rules imposed by the British Standard (BSAU 159) on how and when a tyre can be repaired. All repairs carried out must comply with these standards. Tyres subject to the following kinds of damage will however be deemed irreparable:
- Rubber or tread separations
- Deterioration of the tyre caused by grease or corrosive fluid
- Marking of the interior rubber as a result of overheating due to under inflation
- Visible or deformed bead wire
- Damage larger than regulations allow
At Laws Tyres we offer a puncture repair service. We carry out certain mandatory checks before repairing any tyre to ensure that the tyre is suitable to be safely repaired.
All tyres will be removed from the wheel and fully inspected to ensure that they do comply with the Standards. Any repairs required are then carried out by our fully qualified technicians.
This service is extremely competitively priced and includes the valve and standard balance.
