About: We repair all size tyres. Full section repair. Sidewall damage repaired , including damage right through cords and steel belts. Dont replace - repair.
Services offered: Full section repairs , we can repair damage that tyre shops cant. Tyre manufactur­es state that tyre shops must not repair sidewalls at all. We can.
Areas serviced: All of new Zealand. I can repair very expensive zr vr etc etc. Its worth trucking up for repair when replacemen­t costs are high
Availability: ring txt or email anytime. Most of my customers are tyre fleet / service company's etc. But will help anyone and go from ride on to giant tractor
I repair splits , cuts , impact fractures and damage to sidewall.
You name it i can repair. I have been repairing tyres for 38 years.

All work is done to the correct and legal British standard for tyre section repair.

If your tyre shop tells you , sidewall damage cant be repaired ,he is not lying , he is not allowed to repair anything bigger than a nail hole. , and can not go into shoulder or sidewall , we no longer have tyre factories in NZ , whats he supposed to do

Tyre repair shops are very few and far between. Hes doing the correct and safe action.

Tyre manufactures do not allow tyre shops to repair tyres. [ they can repair a puncture in tread area only]

But the worlds best manufactures such as Bridgestone , Good year , Michelin , all state in there manuals that they welcome sidewall repair , or any repair as long as its carried out in a tyre factory by specialised technicians.

I trained in a tyre factory , and trained specifically on tyre section repair.

I have a special skill , keep up with tyre design and construction and keep my specialised machinery up to date with advances in repair technology.
With all the issues today with climate change etc , its wrong to throw away a tyre , pay for disposal, pay for a new replacement , pay for fitting and balance.

And all that so the tyre can lay around for hundreds of years in a landfill.

98 per cent of tyres discarded due to damage , i could have repaired , so don't spend money replacing a tyre that can be repaired.

Today's technology is amazing the repair units have Kevlar cords , are so light its unbelievable , today's tyre repairs are a thousand percent better than 30 years ago , and i know as i have been in the trade 38.

So don't waste money , repair , before replace.
Tyres are horrible when at the end of there life.
So care for your planet and the planet that your kids will be handed.

Grant: I will respond by writing a passage from the goodyear tyre manual . [U.S.A] "Tire repairs made by fleet operators and tire service centres , are limited to SIMPLE punctures , such as nail holes . Anything more extensive , such as spot , reinforcement or complete section repair , must be referred to a tyre retreading \ repair facility. Tyre service centres can only repair punctures in tread area. Section repair and puncture repair are 2 completely different processes .
Thanks Grant for your great service. You are a pleasure to deal with and obviously have a huge knowledge re tyres and the fitting of. I would certainly contact you again without hesitation re any further tyre repairs or punctures. Cheers Steve.

The Bridgestone Dueler from our VW SUV had a puncture somewhere between the side-wall and the treads. Grant had a look and took it in for repairs right away on a Saturday and we got the repaired tyre back on Monday. Our SUV is now back on the road all thanks to Grant. We received great service from him and we could tell he is definitely experienced in this industry and he knows his stuff. Thanks again Grant! From Felix.

Grant: Thanks and i know all is good with your tyre. See you again if you ever need my services. And thanks for coming all the way from Wellington . Cheers Grant
Had a near new car tyre with a punture on the edge that the tyre guys would not repair. Dropped it off the Grant when we went away and picked it up on the way back as good as new. This guys fixed truck tyres that weigh 2 tonnes so he knows what he is doing. Would highly recommend for any tyre repairs.
