A consumer should never try to repair a damaged tyre. Only a trained tyre specialist who can base his assessment on a thorough and comprehensive inspection of the specific tyre can determine whether an individual tyre is suitable for repair or should be removed from service. This assessment should also take into account the complete service life history of the tyre including inflation, load, operating conditions, etc.. If the tyre specialist decides to repair the tyre, then he should strictly follow all appropriate national tyre industry repair standards regarding the inspection process and repair procedures. Continental is not responsible for the specialist’s decisions or the repaired tyre.
A SSR or runflat tyre may be repaired strictly contingent upon thorough inspection carried out by a qualified tyre professional. Continental recommends that SSR or runflat tyres not be repaired if there are any signs that the tyre has been run in an under-inflated condition.
Note: Continental advises if a tyre is returned under complaint and reason for the product’s disablement is in any way associated with a repair, the manufacturer’s warranty is invalidated.
