Tyrerack Punctures

If you get a puncture you might be able to get it repaired for a fraction of the cost of a new tyre if the puncture is in the main tread area and you stopped quickly without overheating the deflated tyre.

In case of a flat tyre, you must slow down and gradually come to a standstill. If you continue to drive, you might end up damaging the wheel.

It’s normal for a tyre to lose air over time – even for brand-new tyres that are properly inflated and don’t have a puncture, but if you’re having to pump your tyres more often than expected, it could point to a more serious problem, like:

A damaged wheel

A damaged valve stem

A punctured tyre

Improper installation of the tyre.

Driving with a flat tyre can be very dangerous. It can also damage the wheel, the hub assembly, as well as the parts that come in contact with the road surface.

The most common reasons for tyre punctures include damaged wheels, a damaged valve system, and improper initial installation of the tyre. Using a patch is a quick fix, and it’s important for drivers to note that this is not a permanent solution. If you have a flat or damaged tyre, you need to bring it into a Tyrerack store as soon as possible to avoid further damage.

Although it’s nearly impossible to see if there’s a tyre puncture by just looking at the tyre, we can thoroughly inspect your tyre inside and out.

Your tyre will be thoroughly inspected before repair and a repair will not be attempted in case of any of the following:

If the tread depth is below the legal limit of 1.6mm across the tyre’s circumference.

If there is broken structural integrity or run flat damage.

In case of any damage caused by an external object.

If the tyre is worn out, aged or has deteriorated rubber.

If there is exposed cords.

If we note any sign of previous faulty repairs.

In case you are uncertain about whether your car tyre must be repaired or not, contact your nearest branch today for expert advice.
