STOP THE LEAK
TO REPAIR a tyre puncture out in the bush with a wheel still fitted to the vehicle, you’ll need a tyre plug puncture repair kit. This should include at least 10 self-vulcanising plugs, a probe tool, an insertion tool, a razor blade, lube, and a 12-volt tyre compressor to re-inflate the tyre.
Only the tread area should be plugged. If the sidewall is punctured or torn, don’t try to plug it unless you have no spare tyre and it’s to get you out of the bush. If you have no choice but to do this, drive slowly until you reach town and get the tyre replaced immediately.
