Fixing flat tyres can be a complicated process.
British Standard — BSAU159f:1990 regulates the subject of repairing tyres.
It splits the process of fixing punctures into two categories: minor and major repairs.
Our workshop is able to supply most brands of road tyres to suit your vehicles requirements.
We are also able to supply a range of economy tyres in most sizes.
Please contact us for the latest deals.
Location limits, size and maximum number of repairs are also defined in British Standard Legislation.
You can find recommendations about used materials too.
Before repairing tyre we must always check it, if the tyre displays any of the following we won’t be able to fix it:
- Breakdown of the tyre’s structural integrity
- Tread depth below 1.6mm across the central ¾ of the tyre tread
- Throughout the entire circumference
- Tyre rubber deterioration or ageing
- Secondary damage – caused by the injuring object
- Tyre bead damage
- Exposed cords
- Poor previous repairs
If you are not sure about your tyres contact us for a free of charge inspection.
A regular check of your tyres can help you to avoid up to 3 penalty points and £2500 in fines (per tyre) for having tyres worn beyond the legal minimum limit fitted to your vehicle.
