Top Tech Auto Repair Royal Oak Car Care News and Information: When to Replace a Damaged Tire
Posted in Tires and Wheels on January 21, 2016
Repair or Replace? That’s a question Royal Oak auto owners 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 repaired. 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 corrected. Repairing high performance tires may make them unsuitable for motorsports. Your friendly Top Tech Auto Repair Royal Oak tech can survey 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.
