When can a tyre be repaired?
If the damage is confined to the tread, most punctures and holes up to 6 mm can be repaired by trained tyre technicians.
When can’t a tyre be repaired?
Your tyre must be replaced if it:
Has tread punctures larger than 6 mm.
Has sidewall punctures.
Are worn below the wear indicator bars on the tyre.
All tyre repairs should be done by trained professionals – don’t attempt to repair it yourself. In case of emergency, keep a spare tyre in the boot of your vehicle. Make sure that the spare is inflated to the correct pressure and conforms to Australian standards.
