Knights Autos offers puncture repairs Wimborne by following industry-best methods and ensuring exceptional results within a minimum turnaround time.
Our puncture repair procedure follows British Standard BS AU 159. This standard also specifies limitations on aspects like types, sizes and extent of repairs and suggests the materials for repairing any damage.
Before beginning with this service, we conduct several safety checks to ensure safety:
- There must be no exposed cords, or bulges and the tyre tread depth must not be less than 1.6mm.
- The tyre sidewalls must be in their optimal state.
- The size of the puncture must not be larger than 6 mm.
- Damages previously treated with a DIY repair kit are not considered safe for repairs.
- Unfortunately Run-flat tyres should also not be repaired once driven on with a puncture as they change their structure.
In case your car’s tyre fails to meet any of these criteria, we will not conduct a puncture repair Wimborne.
Your safety is our absolute priority!
We would then rather suggest you go for a tyre replacement. We have many different tyre variants in stock in most standard sizes and for every budget.
Why Do We Rank Among The Top Tyre Repairers Wimborne?
Once your car’s tyre meets all the safety requirements, we begin with the service. This includes the following steps:
Step 1: We start by removing the wheel-tyre assembly from your car and carefully remove the tyre, thoroughly inspecting the damaged area.
Step 2: After that, we identify the damaged part and remove any foreign objects. Then we start creating a puncture channel inside the tyre using a 6mm carbide cutter.
Step 3: Following this, we repeat the same process on the outside to ensure that the resulting channel is smooth and free of obstructions to the cutter.
Step 4: We use a custom pre-buffer cleaner and scrape to clean an area 10 to 20mm larger than the tyre repair patch.
Step 5: We then outline the location of the patch and secure it in place. Then, we will polish inner liner with a domed polishing rasp.
Step 6: Then, we insert a tyre repair patch inside the puncture channel after we apply a specialised vulcanisation accelerator solution. This ensures the patch is firmly attached to the inside of the tyre.
Step 7: We will continue to draw the patch to repair the tyre and stick it to the outside. Then, the combined tyre repair patch, stud base, and exposed bumper area are sealed with liner sealant.
Step 8: Next, we cut the stem of the tyre patch and hand over your car to you.
Step 9: Finally, we fit the tyre back on the wheel and inflate it as required.
