Although there are not any existing franchises that offer a vulcanizing tire patch as of 2015, there are smaller shops which do the service, such as Centro Gomas Del Oseste and Carroll Tech Inc. Vulcanizing is a newer patch method as opposed to the older plug technique that is still commonly used to patch flat tires, as of 2015.
Centro Gomas Del Oseste is a shop located in Puerto Rico. It specializes in all types of tire repair including vulcanizing tire patches.
Carroll Tech Inc. is also an independently owned repair shop, and is located in New York. It provides services that focus on tread repair for rubber tracks, which are used on construction or powersports vehicles.
