If you get a flat tyre or a puncture you might be able to get it repaired by one of our team for a fraction of the cost of a new tyre if the puncture is in the main tread area and you stopped quickly without overheating the deflated tyre. Excessive damage can be caused by driving on the tyre when it is flat. If this is the case we stock a large selection of tyres also. We are based in St Helens which means you get local service and fast and efficient service from a local company you can trust to get the job done.
UK Tyres repairs tyres to the British standard BS AU159, this sets out the rules for repairs to car tyres. It defines the type of damage that can be repaired and the way that repairs should be carried out.
One of the most important legal requirements is that the tyre has to be removed from the wheel to check for internal damage. If not spotted this could later result in sudden failure of the tyre. Because of this, externally applied plugs and liquid sealants injected through the tyre valve cannot be thought of as permanent repairs. Our team who deal with puncture repairs every day on all sizes of tyres in Merseyside are ready to help and advise you today.
If your flat tyre has been caused by either a puncture or a faulty valve then we can repair it and have you back on the road in no time and with minimal expense. The patches we use for these jobs are both affordable and hugely effective. In fact, the only damage that can’t be repaired is any damage to the sidewall of your tyre – in these circumstances, you would always need to get the tyre replaced. If you are stranded at the roadside then we would recommend you use our fantastic and highly regarded mobile tyre replacement service instead.
- All it takes is a small screw or nail or a shard of glass, and quite suddenly you will realise that you are now driving on a flat tyre. Sometimes something can stick into your tread and slow leaks will develop that can take weeks to drain your tyre.
When it’s too flat to drive, it’s to flat.
If you do not have a spare and you're stranded at the side of the road we have also got mobile tyre roadside assistance and recovery vehicles. If you do not want to change your own tyre for any reason at all The FastFit centre can help. Anywhere in the local St Helens area, we can have a mobile repair van at your location quickly.
Our vans are fully equipped to deal with any tyre emergency, but many times it is possible to simply repair a tyre that has been damaged through a puncture or a bad valve. Either one of these can be fixed quite easily and very inexpensively, and these patches are very reliable.
Damage to the sidewall of a tyre cannot be repaired – you will have to have a new tyre fitted if the sidewall has been damaged. But our mobile tyre repair service can often fix your tyre at a fraction of the cost of getting a new tyre.
With some size tyres, it will be essential to bring your vehicle into our workshop which we can do with our recovery trucks.

Tyre Repair In St Helens
Repairing a tyre is not as straightforward as you first might think.
Our tyre repairs policy reflects that of the British Standard - BSAU159. The British Standard also defines limits to the location, size and number of repairs that can be carried out and suggests recommended materials to be used for the puncture repair. We stick to these strict regulations for your safety.
Types of Damage
Tyre damage repair should only be attempted if the tyre has first been checked thoroughly. If the tyre displays any of the following characteristics, a puncture repair should not be attempted;
- Illegal tread depth (below 1.6mm across the central ¾ of the tyre tread throughout the entire circumference)
- Secondary damage - caused by the injuring object
- Ageing/deterioration of tyre rubber
- Bead damage
- Exposed cords
- Faulty/poor previous repairs
- Inspection is vital - if you have any doubts about whether or not a tyre should be repaired, do not repair it.
As previously mentioned in our guideline picture there are only certain areas that can be repaired on your tyre, British Standard BSAU159 also defines the requirements for safe minor car tyre puncture repair and its proximity to the sidewall. To remain compliant, we are only able to carry out tyre repairs to the central ¾ of the tyre (known as the minor repair area). If the puncture is situated outside of this area it is deemed too close to the sidewall to guarantee a safe and lasting minor repair.
Unfortunately, we are unable to repair run-flat tyres. We do however supply and fit new run-flat tyres in St Helens.
Run-flat tyres have reinforced sidewalls which means they can be driven on for a short time after picking up a puncture allowing you to travel to safety or to your nearest tyre fitter. Unfortunately, when a run-flat tyre picks up a puncture it’s hard to tell if the structure of the tyre wall has been compromised because the punctured tyre could have been driven on for an excessive amount of time or at unsuitable speeds (over 30mph) but the added strength of the run-flat tyre can mask this damage. For this reason, we cannot carry out minor repairs to run flat tyres as the tyre may no longer be safe to use.
