Welche Reifenschäden können repariert werden? - Nuoka

Which tire damages can be repaired?

Repairing tire damage is possible provided certain criteria are met. However, not all types of tire damage can be safely repaired. Some typical tire damage that can usually be repaired are:

  1. Simple punctures and punctures: Small holes or punctures caused by nails, screws or sharp objects located in the tread area of ​​the tire can be safely repaired.

  2. Tread Damage: Shallow cuts or cracks in the tire tread that are within certain size limits can be repaired as long as they are not too large or too close to the tire shoulder.

  3. Punctures: Smaller punctures or perforations in the tread can usually be repaired with a repair mushroom or patch.

All of these tire damages can be repaired with the patented CoPrA tire repair system. Although the CoPrA tire repair system is the most versatile tire repair system on the market, certain restrictions apply as to when tire damage on the tread can still be repaired safely and in accordance with guidelines. A professional must assess the damage to the tire after removal and then decide whether it is within the permissible repair specifications for the repair system he is using. In addition to the legal requirements for repairing a tire in accordance with §36 StVZO (BMV/StVZO 13/36) , the manufacturers of reputable repair systems also specify which types of damage their system can be used for. It is also important to note that not all tire damage can be repaired. Some examples of damage that should not be repaired include:

  1. Large cracks or cuts: Deep cracks or cuts in the tread or on the tire sidewalls are usually not repairable.

  2. Damage to the tire shoulder: Damage near the tire shoulder can compromise the structural integrity of the tire and is often unrepairable.

  3. Wear and Tear: If a tire is severely worn or damaged and is at or below the minimum tread pattern, it should be replaced for safety reasons.

  4. Internal Damage: Tire damage that affects the internal structure of the tire, such as: B. Steel belt breaks are usually not repairable.

  5. Aging and UV Damage: Tires that are deteriorated due to aging, cracks or UV damage should be replaced for safety reasons.

  6. Puncture remedy: If a puncture remedy has been applied to the tire, it may no longer be repaired as the integrity and safety of the tire can no longer be guaranteed.

If repairable damage to a tire is professionally repaired using an approved tire repair system, the tire can be remounted and put into operation.
