Riding on a flat tire for too long can cause damage to the tire which cannot be repaired. As the tire deflates, the rim comes into closer contact with the ground, which can cause damage to the wheel. It is important to have your flat or damaged tire repaired as soon as possible. The quicker you have your vehicle brought into a repair shop, the more likely a lightly to moderately damaged tire can be repaired and saved.
Quality Tire Repairs
Our service staff will employ proven methods for tire repair that comply with the Rubber Manufacturer’s Association’s (RMA) guidelines. The RMA guidelines indicate that a flat tire can only be repaired if the puncture is no larger than 1/4 of an inch, and only if it’s located on the tire’s tread. The RMA recommends that the repair involve a plug and patch procedure on the tire’s lining.
A plug and patch repair can add up to thousands of miles more to a tire that has been damaged. If you have a punctured tire, we can patch, plug, or seal the affected area. If your tire has a damaged valve stem which is allowing air to escape, or if the tire itself is not securely attached to the rim of the wheel, our professional tire repair service staff can help! Repairing tires will help keep you and others safe on the road.
