When a foreign object penetrates the inside of a pneumatic tire it's going to leak. Before the resulting flat tire can be repaired, there are a number of factors that must be considered including size, location, and the angle of penetration. Puncture repairs are performed by the thousands every day but only a certain percentage of them follow the industry recommended guidelines and procedures. This session will outline the repair limits for punctures in passenger and light truck tires and provide an overview of the step-by-step procedures that are necessary to properly repair a tire.

Speakers: Matthew White, Director of Tire Service, Tire Industry Association; Tim BeVier, Manager National Account Development, Tech International; Robbie Bushnell, Vice President of Tire Repair Products, 31 Inc.; Jason Donahey, Sales Manager, Patch Rubber Company; Adam Tillery, Vice President of Sales & Marketing, REMA Tip Top
