British Standard – BSAU159f:1997. The British Standard also has limits on the location, size & number of repairs that can be carried out.
A tyre must always be inspected before it is repaired. If the tyre displays any of the following faults it should not be repaired.
• Illegal tread depth (below 1.6mm across the central ¾ of the tyre tread throughout the entire circumference)
• Secondary damage – caused by the injuring object
• Ageing/deterioration of tyre rubber
• Bead damage
• Exposed cords
• Faulty/poor previous repairs
British Standard BSAU159 also defines the requirements for safe repairs. To remain compliant, we are only able to carry out tyre repairs to the central ¾ of the tyre known as the minor repair area. If the puncture is outside of this area it is too close to the sidewall to guarantee a safe long lasting repair.
