When you have a flat tyre / Puncture all you want is to get back on the road.
Find a safe place to remove the punctured tyre and fit the spare, safely out of the way of any traffic.
Instructions on how to remove the punctured tyre and fitting the spare can be found in your vehicle’s owner's manual.
It is critically important to organise for the punctured tyre to be repaired as soon as possible. This is especially the case if your vehicle's spare tyre is a space saver or speed limited. You can tell if it's a space saver tyre, as they're generally smaller in size than your regular tyres
What causes a flat tyre?
A flat tyre is generally caused by a puncture to a tubeless tyre’s casing, allowing air to escape and causing the tyre to deflate. Punctures are usually caused by sharp objects like small nails, screws, glass shards and other road debris.
