How do we conduct puncture repair Newcastle Upon Tyne?
We follow the below-mentioned procedure while conducting puncture repairs:
We will unmount your vehicle’s wheel/tyre assembly and remove the tyre.
We thoroughly inspect the damaged area plus the overall condition of the tyre.
Any object still stuck in the tyre will be removed.
Now, we will make a puncture channel with a 6mm carbide mill cutter from the tyre’s inside and outside.
- We will use a pre-buff cleaner and scraper to clean the area about 10mm to 20mm larger than the repair patch.
- After holding the patch in place, we will draw an outline and buff the inner liner using a domed buffing rasp.
- Now, we will use a special vulcanising accelerator solution in the puncture channel, then insert the tyre patch and plug it inside the channel.
- Our experts will now pull the tyre patch, plug it outside and cut the tyre patch stem before safely fitting the tyre back on the rim.
- We will balance the wheel
- The tyre/wheel assembly will be mounted back onto the vehicle.
- We will make sure the tyre pressure is accurate before you leave from us.
