When you’re stuck in the middle of the road with a flat tyre, the first thing you need to do is to park your vehicle aside safely away from the moving traffic. Next, remove the flat tyre from the vehicle and fit the spare tyre safely; however, get the flat tyre repaired at the earliest.
A puncture to a tubeless tyre’s casing allows the air to escape and tyre to deflate. Punctures are normally caused by sharp objects such as small nails and screws. These objects tend to cause punctures of less than 5mm in diameter. Suppose, they happen within tyres’ tread area, usually, a repair is possible for the tyre.Repairable area
Areas in the central 3/4 of a tyre that has a tread depth of no less than 1.6mm are considered minor repair areas.Unrepairable area
If there are many punctures in the tread or if you notice any puncture in the tyre’s sidewall or shoulder areas then you need to replace the tyre with a brand new tyre.
Normally, any tyre puncture repair takes about 30 minutes. Repairing a punctured tyre involves the following:
Seal the tyre’s casing to avert contaminants or moisture from getting in the tyre’s casing or structure.
Deflate and remove the flat tyre from the rim.
Assess and repair the puncture and fit it back to the rim, then balance the tyre on the wheel.
The tyre along with the wheel is now ready, so fit it to your vehicle and place the spare back in storage.
