Also, perimeter deformation on the sidewall, or air pockets between the rubber and the carcass ply, among others, irreparable necessarily require the replacement of the tire.

Once this initial assessment has been made and it has been determined that tire repair is possible, it is time to see what type of repair is possible in the specific case. There are two options:

The tire has a puncture. Punctures can be repaired in any rubber if the puncture is not located on the tire’s nomenclature. And if it does not have a diameter greater than 15 mm. The rubber is not rated with a high-speed code (from H codes onwards, it is not advisable to repair punctured tires).

That the tire has no tread. Tires mounted on heavy vehicles, and some industrial tires can be retreaded and regrooved to avoid replacement since the cost is very high. This repair method is not approved for passenger cars, motorcycles, etc.
