Tyre Puncture Repairs
Yes it is worth having Tyre Puncture Repairs
Many motorists go through life without having any Tyre Puncture Repairs. Thus, on their cars. Some of our customers are forever having punctures and their tyres
repaired. For this reason, the fact that they need new tyres fitting. Consequently, the reason that they have had a puncture. Is that their tyres have little tread left on them .
The tyres become “softer” when your tread is very low. Therefore, bald tyre will tend to pick up objects such as nails and screws. Thus, causing you to have a puncture. Having tyres with good tread. Of course, actually deflects objects located on the road. Of course, some drivers are just completely unlucky. Therefore, picking up objects. Even with a new tyre fitted. So this is in general and not very common. So as I say most Tyre Puncture Repairs are due to the car having bald tyres. Which can easily pick up nails and screws up from the road.
