Most Punctures are on the passenger rear tyre due to the front passenger tyre spitting an object up from the curb and the rear tyre absorbing the impact like a nail or screw.
We use only internal patches and plugs. What this means is a proper repair job that you can trust will keep the tyre going for the remainder of the tyres life! These repairs involve taking the tyre off the rim, sealing an internal patch where the puncture was and fitting the tyre back on the rim then re balancing the tyre.
