To Patch or Plug and Other Tire Repair Considerations

Tire repair is an often encountered necessity of all drivers. This article discusses the need for tire inspection and describes one effective method of repair.

The first advantage of using skilled technicians is that you'll be able to access their expertise to evaluate the overall worth of the failed tire. Maybe this is not one that should be repaired because its safe usable life doesn't justify the cost of the repair. The other possibility is that the size or location of the injury makes it un-repairable. There are very well defined industry standards that single out non-repairable conditions which include, but are not limited to, (for passenger cars) injuries over one quarter inch, punctures created by an object piercing the tire at an angle greater than 25 degrees and inner liner separations or impact generated injuries.

Many of these conditions can only be evaluated when the tire is removed from the wheel which is what you should insist upon. Repair methods, typically plug repairs, performed from the outside of the tire, leave out the most important step of the repair procedure - evaluation. For example, a nail entering toward one side of the tread may seem like a simple repair needing only a plug. However, without dismounting the tire from the wheel there is no way to determine if collateral damage has been done to the inside. Depending on the length of what has pierced the tread, damage may have been done to the interior sidewall. It is not uncommon for a long nail or screw to rip into the sidewall with no visible evidence on the outside of the tire.

The use of a combination plug and patch (as pictured) is a reliable repair method. The hole is cleared out with a carbide cutter to remove any steel cord. The area is then prepared and glue applied. The stem of the mushroom shaped patch is then passed through the puncture hole from the inside and the round patch is chemically knitted to the liner of the tire. All this requires specialized equipment that any reputable repair facility will have on hand.

This combination type of patch accomplishes two important functions that individual plugs or patches cannot. The plug fills the puncture hole reducing the possibility of the tire's steel cord rusting over time and the patch reinforces the injured area.

Tire repair isn't brain surgery, but when it comes to maintaining the integrity of what is between you and the roadway you want to be confident that it is done correctly. And remember to insist that the inside of the tire be inspected by a knowledgeable person because in this case what you don't know can definitely hurt you.
