Can You Repair That Tire Puncture?

Nail in your tire? It”s important to know if a puncture can be repaired if the tire needs to be replaced.

This video gives a simple explanation to understanding when a repair is possible.

Tire punctures can only be repaired in the tread area and should not be over 1/4″ in diameter.

Note: Quick DIY repairs do exist, but long-term repairs can only be completed by removing the tire from the wheel. A patch must be applied to seal the inner liner and  the tire should be inspected for further damage.
