They say damage to sidewall is always different and complicated as compared to a standard tyre puncture. Most frequently, tyre sidewall puncture cannot be repaired at all, especially if some slices or cuts are deeply rooted. As far as tyre repair of regular puncture is concerned, it can be done very easily by oneself by parking the car or bike at an area with no traffic or at the nearest gas station. However, since the sidewall of the tyre is comprised of steel rings for more balance and power purpose, and also because the sidewall is profoundly thin with flex design to transfer the rest of vehicle’s power to the road, it is precarious and almost impossible to repair tyre puncture with the damaged sidewall.
