Bells Mill AutoCare Vehicle Maintenance Tips and Videos: When to Replace a Damaged Tire
Posted on January 15,16 by truck2
Repair or Replace? That’s a question Chesapeake motorists ask when they have tire damage. Some punctures cannot be repaired because of their size or location. Punctures larger than a quarter of an inch are considered too large to be safely corrected. Punctures in the sidewall or near the shoulders may not be able to be repaired. And sometimes there is internal damage revealed on inspection that indicates the tire should not be repaired.
Run flat tires should not be fixed. Repairing high performance tires may make them unsuitable for motorsports. Your considerate Bells Mill AutoCare tech can review your damaged tire and tell you if it can be safely fixed or if it should be replaced – and then help you get back on the road.
