We will offer a puncture repair Manchester only if the tyre adequately meets these parameters. Or else we will let you know and offer a replacement.
About our puncture repair process
As already mentioned above, we follow BS AU 159 puncture repair process involving the following steps:
We will first unmount the punctured tyre of your car.
Next, we will check and locate the damaged portion and remove any harmful objects still piercing the tyre.
We will prepare a puncture channel from the inside of the tyre.
Next, we will use a pre-buff cleaner to clean an area of around 10mm to 20mm wider than the tyre repair patch.
We will hold the tyre repair patch in position to draw an outline.
Following this, we will use a domed buffing rasp to buff the inner liner.
After this, we will apply a specialised solution to the created puncture channel.
Next, we will insert the tyre repair patch and plug it into the channel.
After this, we will carefully pull the patch and plug it outwards to ensure the entire tyre patch is correctly attached to the inside of the tyre.
We will use a superior quality inner liner sealant to seal the tyre repair patch, plug base and buffed area.
Finally, we will cut the tyre patch stem, mount the tyre and re-inflate to the required pressure.
