It is important to know what type of tires your vehicle is fitted with. This is helpful to know should you ever need to change or repair them.
Run-flat tires have a whole host of benefits and have become increasingly popular over the years, but what happens when it comes to repairing them?
Read on to find out if a run-flat tire can be patched or plugged and if it is worth it.
Can a Run-Flat Tire Be Patched?
Generally yes, a run-flat tire can be patched depending on the severity of the damage. Some manufacturers recommend patching, while others do not and this decision is based on a number of factors.
Unfortunately, run-flat tires can only be repaired if the crown area has been punctured. If the sidewall is punctured or ruptured, then the tire will need replacing altogether.
