Punctures

Almost half of all flat tyres caused by a puncture can be repaired safely and cheaply without the need for a replacement tyre.

The most important thing that you can do to help the chances of your puncture being repairable is not to drive on it when it is flat – driving for even a few hundred metres on a flat tyre can damage it and make it un-repairable. So as soon as you notice it is flat, put the spare wheel on and drop it off at Birway.

What kind of tyres can be repaired?

  • If the tyre has been punctured by something small like a nail or a screw, and not something large like a piece of broken glass or running into a kerb or pothole.
  • The puncture has happened in the central area of the tread, and not near the edges or in the sidewall.
  • The tyre has not been driven on when flat as this causes the sidewalls of the tyre to be weakened making a repair unsafe.

Any tyre that visually conforms to the above will be removed from the wheel and fully inspected for internal damage before the puncture is repaired.

All puncture repairs carried out by Birway are in compliance with the British Standard (BSAU159).
