A punctured tyre can occur anywhere, anytime. Whilst a small puncture doesn’t typically mean severe damage, it will require assessment by a professional as soon as possible. Slow punctures can result in a blowout, which should be avoided at all costs.
At Dowling McCarthy Tyres, our qualified technicians will assess your punctured tyre to work out exactly where the puncture is, and whether or not there’s any internal damage. Whether or not a tyre puncture can be repaired depends greatly on the location of the puncture. If the puncture occurs between the tyre’s shoulders (the central portion of the tread area) and is less than 6mm in diameter it’s usually repairable.
If you have had the misfortune of a punctured tyre, come in to one of our stores. Our experienced technicians can assess if a repair is possible. All puncture repairs at Dowling McCarthy Tyres are completed to a high standard to give you the confidence that your tyre is safe.
