Before your tire is repaired, it must go through a thorough inspection to ensure its safety isn’t compromised. During this inspection, our technicians will inspect different areas of your tire, including the tread, sidewall, and internal structure. For a tire to be qualified, it must pass all requirements. If it fails even one, the tire must be taken out of service. Here’s what we look for in a qualified tire.
When inspecting your tire, the first thing our technicians will look for is the location of the damage. Tire repair only happens if the damage to your tire is within the tread. Anything outside of the tread indicates the structural integrity of the tire is compromised and it will need to be replaced.
Along with this, our techs look for scuffing along the sidewall. This occurs when a motorist drives with a flat tire for a long duration. If the tire has damage within the tread but has scuffing on the sidewall, the tire must be replaced.
If the damage is within the tread, our technicians transition their focus on the size of the damage. A puncture should be no bigger than ¼ inch or 6 millimeters in diameter. If so, then the tire can be repaired. If the damage is beyond the maximum limit, the tire must be taken out of service and replaced.
