Flat Tire Repair
A flat tire can be at best a nuisance and at worst downright dangerous. Driving with tire pressure that is too high or too low is a common cause of tire damage. Once the tire has been punctured it is best to take it to be repaired as soon as possible to minimize further damage. Our trained tire repair technicians can assist you with diagnosing the problem. We will remove the tire from the wheel and check for the location and size of the damage to ensure the tire can be repaired safely and successfully.
It is not recommended to repair a tire that has a puncture greater than 1/4 of an inch. The good news is that small nails and screws, which are often the culprit, are typically less than 1/4 inch in diameter.
Proper tire repair entails both plugging and patching from the inside of the tire. Additionally the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) may need to be reset.
