- Plugging : This is the fastest way to repair a flat tyre. A small piece of leather with a distinct adhesive coating is pushed into the hole. Then, this adhesive solidifies into a permanent seal owing to the heat generated while driving.
- Patching : Patching is another tyre repair technique which involves sticking an adhesive-coated square piece of rubber to the interior of the tyre.
- A combination of plug and patch : This is the most efficient tyre repair technique. A rubber patch with a stem is inserted into the tyre, and the short tail-like end is utilised to plug the gap.
Backed by years of experience, our technicians are adept at all types of tyre repairs Southampton.
Can all damaged tyres be repaired?
Unfortunately tyres with a damaged sidewall or bulges showing, tyres with extensive wear, a damaged area wider than 6mm or tyres which have been previously repaired with a DIY kit cannot be repaired. Run flat tyres cannot be repaired either as they change their structure after a puncture occurs.
In such cases, the tyre has to be replaced.
