Puncture Repair

TR Autos provide puncture repairs at their workshop in Yeovil

How do you get a puncture?

The main causes of punctures are:

  • A nail or shard of glass going through the tyre which allows the air to escape and other road hazards such as uneven road surfaces and pot-holes.
  • Damage to the valve stem that you use to inflate the tyre – if this is damaged or maybe clogged up, it can cause air to leak.
  • If the surface of your tyres are worn down, they’re more likely to succumb to punctures so it’s worth keeping an eye on wear and tear and if you’re not sure about safe levels of tread wear, give the team at TR Autos a call.
  • One of the other most common causes of punctures are over-inflated tyres. If the tyres are too full of air, they become very inflexible and are more likely to puncture if for example, you hit a pot-hole.

Signs that you have a puncture

The most obvious sign of a puncture is if your tyre looks flat or deflated. However, if you’re driving and you can feel your car shuddering or if it’s pulling over to one side, these are also signs of punctures. In this case, pull over when it’s safe to do so and get in touch with TR Autos.

Can all punctures be repaired?

There are restrictions on which punctures can be repaired and this depends on the size and the location of the damage. Damage to the side of the tyre or if the puncture is too large will probably result in a tyre replacement which TR Autos will be able to help you with.
