Problems we can help with – your tyres

Slow puncture cases

Slow puncture cases

Faulty valve

The most common cause of slow puncture is a faulty valve. The valve can let the air leak and slowly deflate the tyre. This can be repaired easily and cheaply at a tyre garage. It is not recommended to drive with deflated tyre as it can increase braking distance.

Alloy wheels

Sometimes the puncture might be caused by the wheel itself. Over time the rim might get damaged or corroded and allow the air to slowly escape from the tyre. A tyre garage might be able to fix the damage but it is recommended that you look to buy a new wheel altogether.

Small hole in a tyre

Driving over a nail, screw, or other sharp object can cause a slow puncture. The object can get stuck in rubber to prevent a blowout but the tiny hole can slowly deflate the tyre. It is very dangerous to drive with tyre punctured as it can lead to a full blowout at high speed.
