When to book a puncture repair
Not all tyre punctures are immediately obvious. If you suspect your tyre has a slow puncture you should have it assessed immediately by a professional, as a slow leak can result in a tyre blowout, which should be avoided at all costs.
Similarly, if you know your tyre has a puncture, don’t ignore the issue. Driving on a damaged tyre decreases vehicle handling capabilities, and can cause damage to other components on your vehicle, including the wheel, brakes and steering system.

A: Yes, but the damaged tyre must not be too worn. Ideally, tyres are replaced in pairs as mismatched tyre diameters side-to-side can cause issues with tyre wear, stability control and anti-lock brake systems.
