1 tyre got punctured by nails.

 

Patching safe?

 

Or need to change new tyres?

 

Tyres only can change in pairs. Don't know if its worth it.

 

If patched up how long is the estimate lifespan of the tyre?

it depends on the location of the puncture and the age of the tyres.

 

assuming the tyres are quite new and it can be repaired, you may go to a tyre shop that does internal patching. once, i went to a tyre shop where the worker used the worm method to plug the puncture from outside. air started to leak from the affected area after six months. from then on, i only go to tyre shops that do internal patching.

nail holes no issue lah, can just patch and drive until next tyre change. 

 

But each tyre can only patch max twice, third time cannot patch liao, need to change it out.  More than 2 holes punctured also better to change it out. [laugh]  [laugh]  [laugh]

it depends largely on the nature of the puncture

 

if side wall then better change

 

if ordinary type of puncture then go for simple patch

 

 

 

if you are so worried about patch, there are literally thousands of cars out their with repair patch

did not hear of reports exploding tyres or the likes from the repairs

 

 

usually if done properly, the repair patch cannot even be recognized, they last as long as you got enough money to maintain the car


nail holes no issue lah, can just patch and drive until next tyre change. 

 

But each tyre can only patch max twice, third time cannot patch liao, need to change it out.  More than 2 holes punctured also better to change it out. [laugh]  [laugh]  [laugh]

 

 

 

Or you die, I tell Radx

 

 

He got more than 2 holes

Yes worms are temporary only. However many local workshop love the fast buck and will always tell you “ can one, I have done thousands and no problem”. And if there is a problem if the worm , it will be “I have done thousands, all no problem, don’t know why yours have a problem.”

In the end why risk it when a proper patch is but another $10-$15 more.
I only go to hurry or south east tires for an internal patch.

In the last 25ywars of driving, all my punctures are nails or screws. And the air leaks out slowly. What I do now is use a portable air pump and inflate the tire up and get it to one of the 2 shops above to do an internal patch. Never bothered to use the spare now.

Last time spare tire really give you an actual spare of your original tires.

 

Now the spare tires for cars are either a small yellow donut or a black donut. Its just what color.

 

Only lorries and pick up still give original spare tires

my previous set of tyres got punctured by nail within the first week, damn suay but used worm patch.

actually can drive but air leakage is slightly faster for that particular patched tyre lo, i.e after a week 3 tyres at 210 that tyre at 200.

but highly recommend internal patching.

Just to share my experience with tyre patching.

In my 18 years of driving, I've had a fair share of nails but they have all been slow leaks and I've always used worm patching.

TPMS alerted a low pressure on Tuesday, so I went to do a worm patch as usual at the petrol station workshop just outside my place.

But I decided to try internal patching today at Southeast Tyres.

10/10 to them and it's worth every cent!

here's the process:

First the worm is taken out and the Tyre is ground with a "stone"
F2F5A47C-4831-44EB-B1DA-9671B7F6DF29.jpeg

Next, use a metal brush to scrub off residual stuff

Vacuum the shards away

Spray some alcohol like stuff on the area

Rub in some tar like paste

Apply some more tar stuff around the patch

They have been doing internal patch exactly this way for years. Doubt they need the extra publicity.

Been doing my own worm patching in the last 20 years of driving

From my first car as a unit student, even last week for a friend's motorbike.

As long as the treads are still usable and as long as the puncture is NOT on the sidewal, a worm patch can usually be quite ok until the tyre needs to be replaced till it wears out.

If the hole is too big for the patch, then a patch can temprorary fix the issue (make the leak even slower) until you can limp to a tyre shop.

Alternatively to patching, you may also use stuff like sealant (slime) as a stop gap measure until you reach a tyre shop or if the leak is small, the sealant may just plug the leak.

What about those that is at the edge of sidewall and thread? Can still patch?

Fantastic product! Had a puncture 2 months ago and used the revival Kit. Found it easy to use and very fast to apply. My tyre is still in good condition and it saved me from buying a pair of new tyres.
