vehicle puncture repair kits - How It Works

A vehicle puncture repair kit is a compact and handy tool that is designed to temporarily repair a tyre puncture. It comprises of a few items such as a sealant solution, an applicator, and a small air compressor.

When a tyre gets punctured, the sealant solution is inserted into the valve stem of the tyre using the applicator, and then the compressor is used to inflate the tyre. The sealant solution fills up the damaged area, sealing any holes or leaks that could cause the tyre to deflate. The compressor is used to pump the tyre back to its required pressure level.

These kits are an affordable and simple solution to puncture repairs, providing drivers with the necessary tools to manage punctures on the go, without having to visit a garage. However, it is important to remember that these kits are only a temporary fix and regular tyre maintenance and replacements are still necessary for safe driving.

Emergency Puncture Repair Kits

Many modern vehicles are no longer supplied with a space saver (click to read more), and this is to drive down additional weight in the car, manufacturing costs and improve efficiency. As an alternative solution, cars now come equipped with emergency puncture repair kits, that (provided the circumstances of the puncture are correct) enable you to repair the defect and continue on your journey.

What are the benefits of puncture repair kits?

The biggest advantage of emergency puncture repair kits is space and weight. A full size spare wheel can weigh approximately 20kg, and they are only half the size of a standard car battery, meaning they leave vital space for other technology and features. According to research, they could offer a temporary fix for four out of five punctures. They are arguably a lot less messy and stressful than using a jack and wheel brace. However, there are many stipulations and scenarios where using an emergency puncture repair kit is not a suitable solution, and they are always only a temporary measure.

Can my tyre puncture be repaired?

Whether a tyre puncture can be repaired or not depends on the size and location of the puncture. Generally, punctures of up to 6mm in diameter, and which are located in the central part of the tyre’s tread can be repaired. However, if the puncture is larger, the sidewall of the tyre is damaged, or the tyre has been driven on while flat, then it may not be repairable. It is always best to have a professional tyre technician assess the damage to determine if the tyre can be repaired or if it needs to be replaced. Driving with a punctured tyre can be dangerous and can cause further damage to the tyre and potentially other parts of the vehicle. If you notice a puncture in your tyre, it is best to have it checked out as soon as possible.

We can repair punctures to car tyres if:

  • The puncture point is in the middle three-quarters of your tyre’s width.
  • The tyre hasn’t had previous repairs.
  • The puncture is less than 6mm in diameter.
  • There’s no damage to the sidewall and shoulders.
  • The tyre is in good shape with a tread deeper than 1.6mm and no significant deterioration to the rubber.

 

A punctured tyre cannot be repaired if:

  • The side wall or outer tread of the tyre is damaged
  • The tyre tread is worn or the rubber is aged/cracked
  • The tyre has been damaged by driving on it while flat
  • If any of these conditions apply, the tyre will need to be replaced.

What are run-flat tyres and can they be repaired?

Run-flat tyres are a type of tyre designed to allow a vehicle to continue driving even after a puncture or loss of air pressure. These tyres have reinforced sidewalls that can support the weight of the vehicle, allowing it to be driven for a limited distance at a reduced speed.

It is possible to repair a run-flat tyre if the puncture is small and in the central tread, but repairs must be handled very carefully as the tyre construction is different from traditional tyres. It’s important to note that not all punctures are repairable, and if not repaired promptly, the tyre may need to be replaced.

It is also advised to consult the manufacturer’s guidelines on repair and replacement of run-flat tyres, as the recommended practices may differ from traditional tyres.

  1. I wish this kind of car puncture was available in Pakistan also. I write about cars in Pakistan, so I keep looking on these car rescue services that are offered in the western countries.
