Punctured Tyre

Why it is best not to continue to drive with a puncture!


Can you really afford to keep driving with a puncture?!!

This tyre was completely blown out. It is very likely that after a puncture,  the car would become extremely difficult to drive and control and will either pull to the left or right. It is crucial to get the car to a safe place and cease driving until you have changed the tyre with a spare if you have one. If you do not feel able to change the tyre if it has blown out, you may want to get road side assistance.
