Can you repair slow puncture?
Also question is, is it dangerous to drive with a slow puncture?
Driving on a slow puncture for any longer than necessary is dangerous, because that slow puncture is more likely to become a fully flat tyre the longer you keep using it. The usual culprit of a slow puncture will be debris that has pierced the rubber. Another potential cause of a slow puncture is a corroded wheel.
Subsequently, question is, can you repair a slow puncture on a run flat TYRE? Most manufacturers advise against repairing run flat tyres. If the deflated tyre has been driven on, it could have compromised its strength, and it is impossible for a fitter to know if the tyre was driven on for longer/faster than recommended after a puncture.
In respect to this, how much does it cost to fix a puncture?
If you catch a puncture early, the repair should cost between $15 and $30. Run-flat tires generally call for complete replacement. Tire plug kits are relatively inexpensive if you know how to do the fix yourself. You can find them priced from $10 to $20.
Can a slow puncture cause a blowout?
A slow puncture means that tyre grip diminishes while the chance of losing control increases, especially in tricky driving conditions caused by the weather. Even worse, the tyre could blow out altogether, resulting in a total loss of control.
