Although getting your tire repaired is the preferred option due to its ease and affordability, a tire must pass specific standards for it to be qualified for a repair. Along with that, it must pass both standards. If the tire passes one but fails the other, we’ll still consider it unfit for repair. These standards help ensure that the tire’s safety isn’t compromised and that you are driving with the safest tire. Without these standards, hundreds of compromised tires could be released back into the road, which would place many drivers in danger. Here’s what the Precision Imports team looks for when assessing the condition of a damaged tire.
The first thing our technicians look for when assessing your tire’s condition is to look for where the tire was damaged. We want the damage to be located within the treads of the tire as they are built to withstand more punishment. If they are within the treads, we then continue on to the next part of our assessment. If they are outside of the treads, then we will consider it unfit for repair.
Once we see the damage is located within the treads, we then look at the damage itself. We want the damage to be no longer than ¼ inches in diameter. If the damage is within the tread area but is bigger than our standard, we will consider that tire unfit for repair. Long jagged cuts within the tread area is an example of a tire that is unfit for repair, while a nail puncture within the tire tread is an example of a tire that is qualified for a repair.
