When to undertake puncture repairs
Tyres that have been run flat or that are perished should, of course, never be considered candidates for any type of puncture repairs. As the size of tyres increases, they also tend to climb in price, which is often a deciding factor for the viability of a repair. If there is ever any doubt as whether a tyre is suitable for repair, it is strongly advised to err on the side of caution in the interest of road safety.
