We offer tyre repairing services at UK Tyres for those that may have leaks in or around their tyres. We often fix small punctures, side wall leaks and valve damages.
Our tyre repairs policy reflects that of the British Standard - BSAU159. The British Standard also defines limits to the location, size and number of repairs that can be carried out and suggests recommended materials to be used for the puncture repair.
British Standard BSAU159 also outlines the requirements for safe minor car tyre puncture repair and its closeness to the sidewall. therefore, we are only able to carry out tyre repairs to the central ¾ of the tyre (known as the minor repair area). If the puncture is situated outside of this area it is deemed too close to the sidewall to guarantee a safe and lasting minor repair.
It should be noted that the following are deemed inappropriate for repair:
Illegal tread depth (below 1.6mm)
Secondary damage - caused by the injuring object
Faulty or poor previous repairs
Ageing and/or deterioration of tyre rubber
