Tire repairs are an excellent service due to their affordability and relative service speed. Unfortunately, not all tires can be repaired, and a tire must have specific characteristics to be qualified. This is because auto shops want to prevent a compromised tire from being released back into the public, which could not only harm performance but place drivers in danger.
Not sure if your car’s tires are qualified for service? If you notice any damage on your tires, make sure you look out for these key characteristics!
When you see that your tire has sustained damage, first see how much pressure is lost. Is the tire slowly losing air? Or has it gone entirely flat? If it’s the former, the tire may still be qualified for a repair! If it’s the latter, the tire must be replaced, as the damage it will sustain when driving on a flat will be too high for a shop to repair. At this point, it’s safer and highly recommended to get a new tire.
After checking the tire pressure, next look at where the damage is located and the size of the damage. For a tire to be repaired, the damage must be located within the tread of the tire, and it must not be bigger than ¼” in diameter. The tread is the most durable part of the tire and can sustain damage & repairs, but it can’t take too much damage. Any long, jagged cuts or massive holes will disqualify a tire from repair, and it will need to be replaced.
