Having your car tyres damaged by driving over a pothole can turn out to be very expensive, but did you know that you don’t always need to fork out for a new tyre?
In many cases the tyre can be fixed and our tyre repairs service could save you a small fortune, because a puncture repair is a lot cheaper than a new tyre – especially one of the premium brands.
Our nationwide etyres branches are experiencing an increased demand for tyre repairs, largely due to the pothole epidemic which has left UK roads littered with potholes.
But if you notice one of your tyres is damaged you can carry out a simple check to see if it qualifies for our tyre repairs service.
All you have to do is download the puncture repair gauge on our website, which will give you a good indication of whether your car tyre can be repaired or not.
The ‘repairable area’ of a tyre is designated as that where a repair can be carried out to British Standards (currently BS AU 159f). Because a tyre curves away from the middle of where the tyre rolls on the road, only the centre area is repairable.
And in case the damage cannot be fixed by our tyre repairs process, we always book you out and bring along a new tyre so that we can get you up and running again quickly.
So if you suspect you’ve got a damaged tyre or suffered a slow puncture, don’t delay – contact etyres immediately to enquire about our tyre repairs service and we will do everything we can to get you back on the road as fast and cheaply as possible.
