Repairing a tyre is not as straightforward as you first might think.

Our tyre repairs are covered by a British Standard – BSAU159f:1990. The British Standard also defines limits to the location, size and number of repairs that can be carried out and makes recommendations also on the repair materials to be used.

A tyre must always be checked thoroughly before it is repaired. If the tyre displays any of the following, it should not be repaired;

Illegal tread depth (below 1.6mm across the central ¾ of the tyre tread throughout the entire circumference)
Run flat damage – breakdown of the tyre’s structural integrity
Secondary damage – caused by the injuring object
Ageing/deterioration of tyre rubber
Bead damage
Exposed cords
Faulty/poor previous repairs
Inspection is vital – if you have any doubts about whether or not a tyre should be repaired, do not repair it.

Have a professional wheel alignment carried out every six months or 10,000 kilometres, whichever comes first. Our team have specialised equipment to fix this problem and get your vehicle back on the straight and narrow.

Misaligned wheels can lead to the following problems:

· Higher fuel consumption.
· Shorter tyre life.
· Unsafe handling.
· Increased driver fatigue.
