Tyre Repair Services

Tyre Repairs:

 

  • Punctured tyres to be repaired, must always be removed from the wheel for inspection
  • JAX Tyres will ensure that your tyre is repaired according to the Australian Tyre Repair Standard
  • Any penetration causing a hole in the tread area not exceeding 6mm diameter may be repaired
  • If the penetration is greater than 6mm or is localised either in the sidewall, shoulder or bead area of the tyre then it is unrepairable and must be replaced to ensure that your safety is not compromised

Repairs to Self Sealing Tyres

Repairs to Seal Inside Tyres may be made in accordance to the Australian Tyre Standard.

This revolutionary tyre design allows the vehicle to continue moving despite a loss of tyre pressure and is able to function as a "get home" solution. This avoids the inconvenience of all that may be associated with changing the tyre at the roadside.

Following a penetration, during the repair procedure it will be necessary to remove the internal sealant in the area of the penetration equal to the size of the repair patch to expose the impermeable butyl liner.

The removal of the sealant will mean that the patched area will lose its special technical characteristics of a Seal Inside tyre.

Repairs to Run Flat Tyres

A number of leading car manufacturers, have started to equip their vehicles with Run Flat or Mobility Tyres.

This revolutionary tyre design allows the vehicle to continue moving despite a loss of tyre pressure and is able to function as a "get home" solution. This avoids the inconvenience of all that may be associated with changing the tyre at the roadside.

Run flat tyres are designed to have a "get you home capability" and depending on the particular tyre brand, can be operated up to a distance of 100km, provided the maximum speed of the vehicle does not exceed 80km/hr.

When punctured and operated in a deflated state, the tyre condition will have to be carefully assessed to evaluate the suitability and integrity of the tyre’s casing prior to carrying out any repair.

There are specific guidelines for the repair of run flat tyres and it should be noted that not all tyre manufacturers approve of the repair to their products.
