Checking for Tire Damage
Frequent inspection of your tires for signs of damage &
their general condition is important for safety. If you have any questions, have
your tire dealer inspect them. Impacts, penetrations, cracks, knots, bulges or
air loss always require tire removal & expert inspection. Never perform a
temporary repair or use an innertube as a substitute for a proper repair. Only
qualified persons should repair tires.
Proper Tire Repair
Must be made between the tread shoulders, to a 3/16" diameter or less straight-through puncture, with no run low, run flat, cutting, cracking, separation or other damage.
Must fill the injury. (Example - vulcanized rubber plug or patch-plug combination.)
Must also seal the innerliner. (Example - cemented patch or patch-plug combination.)
Must be done from the inside of the tire. (This also insures that the damaged tire is thoroughly inspected for secondary damage to the innerliner & plies.)
Must conform to the repair kit manufacturer's instructions. ("String" or fabric-based plugs are not recommended.) Must not be injected or inserted from the outside of the mounted tire.
Must not employ a tube or sealant.
