Tire Repair Basics

Damaged or flat tire? We can fix it.

Flat Tire Repair

You’re driving along, minding your business. And suddenly—you hit something in the road. Whether it’s a tree branch, a rock or a nail, the tire damage is done. And time is critical. Whether your tire needs to be repaired or replaced, Tires Plus is here to get you back in the driver’s seat.

Why should you quickly respond to tire damage? If you hit something on the road, it can have a ripple effect throughout your vehicle. A flat tire can be more than inconvenient. It can lead to even more tire repairs (and more costs).

Let our tire repair professionals take a look. If something doesn’t feel right to you, chances are there may be a problem. Save yourself expensive repairs down the road with a timely inspection at Tires Plus. We’ll assess any potential problems caused by tire damage. In many cases, it’s just a simple fix

Watch for Signs of Vehicle Damage

Head to your nearest tire repair shop or call for assistance if you see these signs:

  • Bulging tire sidewalls: Hitting a tree branch or something large can cause the sidewalls on your tires to bulge. If not addressed right away, costly tire repairs could be around the corner.
  • Bent tire rims: Most new cars have aluminum rims. If struck by a large object in the road, they may be more susceptible to bending.
  • Leaks under your car: If you drive over an obstruction in the road and see that fluid is leaking, be sure to bring your vehicle in for a complete inspection. We’ll take a look underneath and get to the root of the problem.
  • Noise from your exhaust system: You hit something and now you hear noises coming from your exhaust system. This definitely requires a visit—stop by Tires Plus ASAP!

When a Tire is Beyond Repair

You want to get the most time and performance out of your vehicle’s tires, but at a certain point due to wear or damage it’s safer to replace than to repair. Here’s when we recommend you choose tire replacement over tire repair.

The scenario where tire replacement is nearly unavoidable is when you have large tire punctures or cuts. If your tires have a hole over a quarter inch in size or you have a puncture or cut in a key area like your tire’s sidewall, it will always be safer to replace. Quick fixes like patch jobs are tempting, but ultimately you won’t be able to achieve a good enough seal to keep your tire working long-term.
