Tire Repair

Flat Tires could cause the rim of the wheel to rest on the tire tread or on the ground potentially triggering in loss of control of the automobile or irreparable damage to the tire. The most common cause for a flat tire is piercing of the tire by a sharp item, such as a nail, enabling air escape. Depending on the size of the puncture, the tire could deflate gradually or quickly. Which could cause the following concerns:

  • Failing of or damages to the valve stem;
  • Allowing air to escape from the valve or triggering damages by means of deliberate puncturing
  • Rubbing of the tire against the roadway, tearing the tire, or splitting up of tire and rim by crash with additional objects;
  • Excessive wear of the tire tread causing explosive tire failure or allowing road debris to tear through it

Some tires, especially a slow leak, can easily be mended and re-inflated; others, especially those from worn tread, need to be changed.

Below are some basic methods to catch tire troubles before they become expensive or unsafe. Take a thorough examination of each tire in a well lit environment. Inspect for uneven tire wear, which can easily be caused by:

  • Excessive or too little air pressure
  • Complications with wheel positioning or tire balancing
  • Complications with the suspension
  • Uneven tire wear might be an indicator that you could need to have your tires rotated

These can mean you need brand-new tires-- soon. Driving with a flat tire, especially at high speeds, could cause a dangerous accident. These complications have the potential to induce a blowout, triggering a loss of control that can easily be really unsafe.

  • Breaking or bulging treads or sidewalls that may imply there is wear or weak point
  • Foreign items that penetrate into the tire (nails, screws, glass)
  • Tread pulling away from the body of the tire
