About 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 – as soon as it is safe to do so stop your vehicle. Driving for even a few hundred yards on a flat tyre can damage it and make it un-repairable. So as soon as you notice it is flat, either put the spare wheel on, or call SixStar Tyres on 07774 953 514.
All puncture repairs carried out by SixStar Tyres are in compliance with the British Standard (BSAU159).
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
Aging/deterioration of tyre rubber
Faulty/poor previous repairs
We will advise on the state of all tyres before carrying out a repair.
