Broken Tire - Why You Should Consider Tire Repair!

Your vehicle's tires are a vital part of your safety and performance on the road. When you encounter a flat or punctured tire, you may be tempted to simply buy a new tire. But before you go for this expensive option, you should consider getting your tires repaired. Here are some key reasons why repairing your tires is often a better choice:

  1. Cost Savings: The most obvious benefit of having tires repaired is the significant cost savings compared to buying a new tire. Tires are an investment and if the damage isn't too severe, you can save your money by having the punctured tire repaired. A tire repair costs 30 to 50 euros and is therefore a significantly lower investment than buying a new tire.

  2. Environmental friendliness: Manufacturing tires generates a significant amount of CO2 emissions and requires natural resources. By repairing and reusing your tires, you help reduce your environmental footprint by wasting fewer resources and generating less waste.

  3. Quick Fix: Repairing a tire is usually a quicker fix compared to buying a new tire. This minimizes your vehicle's downtime and allows you to get back on the road faster. If a tire is repaired with the CoPrA tire repair system, it can be reinstalled immediately after the repair and you are mobile again. The downtime is only the duration of the repair, which takes about 30 minutes with disassembly, repair, balancing and assembly.

  4. Good option for minor damage: Tires are often damaged by nails, screws or other sharp objects. Such damage can often be successfully repaired as long as it is in the tread area and not too large. An experienced tire specialist can assess the damage and determine whether a repair is possible. With the CoPrA tire repair system, tread damage up to 6 mm can be repaired safely and in accordance with the guidelines.

  5. Safety: Safety should always come first. When your tire is properly repaired, the original performance of the tire is retained. This means that it still meets the required standards in terms of grip, traction and stability on the road. Therefore, when repairing a tire, make sure that the tire repair material used to repair the tire complies with the guidelines in accordance with §36 StVZO and that the manufacturer subjects the tire repair material to regular tests in order to be able to ensure safety in the event of a tire repair. Also, tires should only be repaired by qualified personnel after removal from the rim and subsequent inspection of the damage.

  6. Maintaining tire quality: High-quality tires are often expensive. If you own such a tire and it has only a minor puncture, repairing it is a sensible choice to preserve the tire's life and performance.

So before you rush into buying a new tire, you should consider whether a repair is possible. However, be aware that not all damage can be repaired and it is important that the repair is performed by a qualified tire specialist. Safety always comes first and if a tire is no longer safe to repair, you should definitely consider a replacement. However, in most cases, many tires can be successfully repaired and this can save you money and help the environment.
