Tire Repair/Flat Repair

Repairable ares for passenger and LT tires

Revolution Tires and Wheels will repair a tire if the tire can be safely repaired. Often a tire is not repairable. We follow the Rubber Manufacturers Associations' guidelines to repairing a tire.

Knowing the difference between a proper tire repair and an improper tire repair could be critical to vehicle safety. A tire industry study showed that nearly 88 percent of the tire repairs are performed improperly. An improper tire repair could pose a safety hazard to you and your family and could also affect a tire manufacturer's warranty.

One key process in a proper tire repair is removing a tire from the wheel to inspect any damage that may occur to the inner liner of the tire.

The criteria to perform a proper repair are:

• Repairs are limited to the tread area only the shoulder area and sidewall are not allowed to be repaired

• Puncture injury cannot be greater than 1/4 inch (6mm) in diameter

• Repairs must be performed by removing the tire from the rim/wheel assembly to perform a complete inspection to assess all damage that may be present

• Repairs cannot overlap

A rubber stem, or plug, must be applied to fill the puncture injury and a patch must be applied to seal the inner liner. A common repair unit is a one-piece unit with a stem and patch portion. A plug by itself is an unacceptable repair. 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. 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

Also note that damage to a tire's sidewall is impossible to repair; only damage to the tread area of a tire can be repaired.

If you have damage to the side wall, it cannot be repaired. Green area Yes. Red area NO

Never drive your vehicle on a flat or punctured tire! Doing so is dangerous and likely to damage your wheels.

Proper tire repair is critical and any puncture or injury to a tire will affect its performance. If you have any questions regarding your tire's condition, we'll be glad to inspect them for you.
