Mackert Automotive LLC Auto Tips and Car Care: When to Replace a Damaged Tire

Repair or Replace? That's a question Gig Harbor car owners ask when they have tire damage. Some punctures cannot be repaired because of their size or location. Punctures larger than a quarter of an inch are considered too large to be safely repaired. Punctures in the sidewall or near the shoulders may not be able to be repaired. And sometimes there is internal damage revealed on inspection that indicates the tire should not be repaired.

Run flat tires should not be fixed. Repairing high performance tires may make them unsuitable for motorsports. Your friendly and courteous Mackert Automotive LLC service advisor can check your damaged tire and tell you if it can be safely repaired or if it should be replaced - and then help you get back on the road.
