Other guidelines for tyre repairs
If the angle of penetration is more than 45 degrees a repair is not advised. The construction of the belt on those cases may separate, leading to a tyre failure.
Holes more than 3mm in diameter should not be repaired.
In most cases cuts are not repairable as the belts of the tyre separate and may lead to a blow out.
Damage on the shoulder area and on the side are not safely repairable.
