Small Pointed Object Piercing
Typically, the roads have tiny objects with pointed tips like nails, bolts, screws, glass pieces, etc., scattered on the road. These objects can readily prick the tyres causing small holes that eventually lead to tyre leakage. However, such small tyre leakage and slow puncture scenarios are easily repairable.
However, driving on such leakages and punctures at higher speeds can damage the tyre more, making it not repairable. For instance, high speeds can cause blowouts.
Similar to small holes, if those mentioned above or any other objects cause cuts on the tyre. These cuts are also repairable in many circumstances. However, not in deep cuts cases. You can simply repair the tyre if the damage is 0.25 inches (1/4″) or less in diameter. Small cuts can have patching and sealing to make the tyre to be usable.

Treads are what is in between the tyres’ shoulders. If the tread’s central portion (central ¾) is punctured, it can be repaired.

Conditions that Call for Tyre Replacement
Huge Holes/ Piercing
Piercing of the pointed objects causes huge holes in the tyres and increased gas leakage. For instance, holes larger than 55mm are not repairable. So replacing the tyre is the right option.
Deeper Cut Damage

In some cases, repairing the punctured sidewall can work fine. Probably enough to let the car reach the garage or home safely.

For the most part, the sidewall, once damaged, becomes weakened and can blow out if the weight/ pressure is beyond the limit.
