Multiple punctures caused by nails or other sharp objects, up to 6 mm in tread area, can be repaired using this technology, according to a statement from the tyre maker.
Puncture guard tyres provide a worry-free ride for the duration of the tyre’s lifespan, with no air loss.

Vehicle owners benefit greatly from this technology, which provides a high level of safety and convenience, “CEO Raghupati Singhania of JK Tyre was quoted as saying.
