WHEN IT COMES TO REPAIRING A TIRE, YOU HAVE MORE OPTIONS THAN YOU THINK:
This kind of repair is commonly used in automotive repairs shops. Before deciding to patch a tire, there are some considerations to be made:
• Is the thread the below is considered safe?
• Would the patch be too close to a previous patch?
• Are more than two patches performed previously?
• Is the puncture too close to the sidewall of the tire?
If none of the above are true, then a patch is performed by first removing the tire from the wheel, marking the location of the puncture. Then the surface is prepared using an angle grinder and the rubber cement is applied to the prepped area, applying the patch, and then pressing it onto the surface with a tire stitcher.
Generally considered safer, an alternate patch is a combination patch and plug. This patch is manufactured with a plug built into it, applying this patch is done very similarly to the way a regular patch is applied except with a few more steps. The additional steps include drilling a hole at the location of the puncture so the plug can be pulled through it, as well as cutting off the excess plug from the outside of the tire.
A tire plug is able to be performed without removing the tire from the wheel. The puncture is removed from the damaged tire. Then, a plug coated in rubber cement is inserted with a handle.
While this method is more reliable than tire sealant alone, it is considered less reliable than patching but they do provide a quick and easy solution for novices.
