Only thanks to cord (textile or metal) tire capable of withstanding loads. And due to a cut, as a rule, torn and cord. You cannot restore it. There is no such device that would be implanted in the new camera thread.

Where torn cord, the tyre becomes unstable and loses its rigidity. Even if the wheel to patch the tire professionals, no one can guarantee that the wheel will not explode at high loads. In addition, begin to suffer all suspension components.

Let the wheel and balanced, the lack of rigidity in one point breaks the synchronicity in the work of the hubs and levers, steering rack.
