Safe Driving

If your tire becomes damaged, it may be repaired if it meets the following criteria:

  1. The tire has not been driven on when flat.
  2. The damage is only on the tread section of your tire (sidewall damage ruins a tire immediately) and/or
  3. the puncture is no greater than ¼"

How is a tire properly repaired?

Patch, yes. Plug, no.

The proper way to have a tire repaired is to patch the tire from the inside and fill the puncture hole. Do not have your tire plugged. Ever. Plug repairs do not involve taking the tire off the wheel for a proper inspection. A plug is simply inserted into the punctured area, making it unreliable. Insist on a full inspection and have your dealer demount and internally as well as externally inspect the tire, patch and fill the repair on the inside of the tire.
