Tire Repair Guidelines

When your tires need repair, never use a plug-only or patch-only repair. If any tire is punctured, have the tire dismounted and inspected internally for possible damage and get the necessary professional flat tire repair. Punctures in the tread of tires that do not exceed 1/4-inch in diameter can be repaired by following Rubber Manufacturers’ Association (RMA) recommended repair procedures.

A tire plug by itself or a tire patch by itself is an unacceptable tire repair. The tire repair material used (for example, a “combination patch and plug” repair) must seal the inner liner and fill the injury to be considered a permanent repair. Never use a tube in a tubeless tire as a substitute for proper repair.

If the tire has a puncture in the tread that exceeds 1/4-inch, any puncture in the sidewall, or if more than one radial cable per casing ply is damaged, the tire must be removed from service and the tire must be replaced.
