Tyre Puncture Repair
Tyres may need repairing for a variety of reasons and it’s important to inspect them regularly, or as soon as you spot a puncture, to have the best chance of a successful puncture repair.
Modern tyres are becoming stronger and more durable than ever, however potholes on UK roads cost British motorists an estimated £2.8 billion every year and are one of the largest causes for damaging tyres, alongside road debris such as nails, glass or pieces of metal.
Our mobile tyre puncture repair service repairs around 60% of all punctures we examine, so statistically there is a good chance you tyre will be repairable.
The etyres way what makes our service different from other tyre retailers is that we proactively want to fix your punctured tyre. We have no interest in simply selling you a new tyre.
Market cannibalisation from tyre manufacturers and distributors means that they now own many tyre retailers too – hence why they may want to upsell you to a new tyre. This, alongside rising costs of rubber and manufacturing from the Far East, means your tyre costs are becoming more expensive.
Independent tyre retailers like ourselves, actually earn less from selling certain new tyres than we do on repairing your current tyre.
It’s a win-win. Our local fitters earn a few more pounds when compared to selling you a new tyre but, more importantly, you get your current tyre safely and legally repaired to British Standards, saving hundreds of pounds on unnecessary new tyres.

Why do I need to reserve a tyre?
With our puncture repair service we allow you to reserve a replacement tyre that our fitters will bring on the day of your puncture repair. We do this so that in the event your tyre is not able to be repaired, we can fit your new tyre and get you back on the road. Reserving a tyre also means that we can have this ready the night before so you won’t need to wait in the event that you need a new tyre.
Repaired If your current tyre is repaired we just refund the remaining cost to you, retaining just the repair cost.
Unrepairable If your current tyre can’t be repaired we simply fit the new tyre and you’re back on the road.
Legal Requirements for a Puncture Repair
All puncture repairs we complete are in compliance with the British Standard BS AU 159. Our fitters are equipped to fix punctured tyres at your home or workplace and will remove the tyre from the wheel to fully inspect any damage if needed. We will then assess whether a puncture can be safely repaired or not.
Ensuring that your tyre is repaired to this specification means tyres are repaired to operate at their original speed and load capabilities, which means peace of mind for you and your family.
Can my Punctured Tyre be repaired?
The give your tyre the best possible chance of being repaired it’s important to stop driving as quickly as possible. We have a better chance of repairing you tyre if it has:
- suffered a puncture from something small like a nail or screw.
- a puncture in the central area of the tread (The ‘T’ zone).
- not been driven on after receiving a puncture.
- a tread depth still over the 1.6mm legal limit.
- only one puncture repair in each 90° quadrant – so a very maximum of four. This is the legal and safe requirement under BS AU 159.
- sidewalls which are not cracked and the rubber is in good condition – we will never leave you in a dangerous position.

Can my run flat tyre be repaired?
Yes. It is possible to repair certain run flat tyres using the same legal and safety guidelines as standard tyres. You will find that many tyre retailers do not have the inclination to and they’re more likely to want you to buy a new tyre.
We will always repair your run flat tyre if it is definitely safe and legal to do so. We know how expensive run flat tyres are, so don’t replace a perfectly good tyre unless you have to. We regularly seek updates from tyre manufacturers to see which brands can be repaired.
A safely repaired run flat tyre doesn’t have to mean diminished tyre safety.
