Repairable area tread gauge
Found & attached a Repairable area tread gauge chart which may be useful for folks out here !
Tyre gurus, please comment whether this chart is dependable or not for Indian tyres.

Well, nothing wrong with that. However I dont find the need to get so technical! Some tyres have a more rounded profile and some have a squarish profile.
The simplest way to know if a puncture can be repaired or not is to see if the puncture has happened on a flat area or a curved area. It's simple logic really... No need to overthink such issues!
