Tyre Puncture Repair
Tyres may need repairing for a variety of reasons and it’s important to inspect them regularly, or as soon as you spot a puncture, to have the best chance of a successful puncture repair.
Modern tyres are becoming stronger and more durable than ever, however potholes on UK roads cost British motorists an estimated £2.8 billion every year and are one of the largest causes for damaging tyres, alongside road debris such as nails, glass or pieces of metal.
Our mobile tyre puncture repair service repairs around 60% of all punctures we examine, so statistically there is a good chance you tyre will be repairable.
Why choose DG Tyre Sevices ?What makes our service different from other tyre retailers is that we proactively want to fix your punctured tyre. We have no interest in simply selling you a new tyre.
Market cannibalisation from tyre manufacturers and distributors means that they now own many tyre retailers too – hence why they may want to upsell you to a new tyre. This, alongside rising costs of rubber and manufacturing from the Far East, means your tyre costs are becoming more expensive.
Independent tyre retailers like ourselves, actually earn less from selling certain new tyres than we do on repairing your current tyre.
It’s a win-win. Our local fitters earn a few more pounds when compared to selling you a new tyre but, more importantly, you get your current tyre safely and legally repaired to British Standards, saving hundreds of pounds on unnecessary new tyres.
How much does a puncture repair cost?
Can my Punctured Tyre be repaired?
The give your tyre the best possible chance of being repaired it’s important to stop driving as quickly as possible. We have a better chance of repairing you tyre if it has:
• suffered a puncture from something small like a nail or screw.
• a puncture in the central area of the tread (The ‘T’ zone).
• not been driven on after receiving a puncture.
• a tread depth still over the 1.6mm legal limit.
• only one puncture repair in each 90° quadrant – so a very maximum of four. This is the legal and safe requirement under BS AU 159.
• sidewalls which are not cracked and the rubber is in good condition – we will never leave you in a dangerous position.

A quick guide to finding the correct Tyres
CAR TYRES - We come to you at home or work to fit your tyres. You can order online or if you prefer you can speak with one of our advisors on 02392 655777.
We know that the most important factors when it comes to replacing your car tyres are value for money and convenience.

VAN WINTER TYRES - Tyres fitted to vans and commercial vehicles should be checked regularly for signs or wear or damage. However, fitting winter tyres is an essential measure in keeping working vehicles on the road and working safely whatever the weather. For some years now, large fleet operators like utility companies, delivery firms and supermarkets have made a point of fitting winter tyres to all their vehicles from October to April.
Winter tyres bring increased safety in all winter conditions, not solely on ice and snow. The costs involved are minimal, far less than the costs to any business of not being able to keep vehicles running in bad weather. Additionally, the mobile fitting service of DG Tyre Services means that there’s no inconvenience or lost time involved in switching from summer to winter tyres, either.
DG Tyre Services recommends the use of winter tyres and we fit them to our own extensive fleet of vans every year. They are available in sizes to fit all vehicles and in the reinforced versions needed to support the higher load ratings and weightbearing specifications of vans and commercial vehicles.
Winter tyres for vans have been designed with durability in mind. The tread block design and tread patterns of many van winter tyres ensure exceptional tyre life. For more information on the technology behind winter tyres for vans click here.
Keeping both drivers and fleet vehicles safe, mobile and reliable is important for countless business all year round. Running vans with summer tyres in winter conditions can mean that customers are let down, deadlines missed and money lost, quite apart from the safety implications for both vehicles and staff. It’s important to fit winter tyres when average temperatures fall, not solely when Britain grinds to a halt as the first snow starts to fall. Contact DG Tyres Today
4x4 TYRES - In recent years the market for 4×4 tyres has expanded to become the fastest growing sector of new vehicle registrations, in 2002 the demand for 4×4 tyres was 250% of that for 1997. Gone are the days when a 4×4 vehicle meant driving an ex-army vehicle with no heaters / wipers / performance etc. Today’s 4×4 vehicles are some of the most sophisticated on the road.
Even manufacturers that many years ago may not have considered a 4×4 vehicle in their model line-up are selling as many as they can build – BMW X3 and X5, Porsche Cayenne to name but a few. Most of these “new generation” 4×4’s come equipped with equipment such as cruise control, climate control, active suspension (to name but a few) as standard. Probably the biggest improvement is to be seen in the vehicle performance – for instance the Porsche Cayenne Turbo puts out 450bhp with 620 nm of torque, and will easily outperform the vast majority of cars of the road.
To cope with the extra power and performance of these new vehicles, 4×4 tyre requirements have changed dramatically. In the past most 4×4 vehicles were equipped with either 15″ or 16″ wheels and fitted standard (80 series) or possible 70 series tyres with either “S” (113mph) or “T” (118mph) speed rated tyres. Again if we take the Porsche Cayenne Turbo as an example the standard wheels fitted are 8Jx18 with 255/55R18 Y rated (186mph) tyres. Again with these vehicles there is always the option to upgrade wheel and tyres to 20″ or even 22″ and above.
