Flat tires can be a real pain. They never happen at a “good” time. As a matter of fact, a flat tire almost always happens when you are in a hurry, in a remote location, or on a busy highway. But what do you do when you get a flat tire, and how do you know if your tire can be repaired or if it needs to be replaced? If you have a flat tire, here are the next steps to getting your car back in working order.
If you’ve ever had a flat tire, you know that the whole process is easier if you have the right tools in your car. Make sure that your car has everything that you might need to safely and correctly change a flat tire. What does this mean? Here is a basic list of necessary items for changing a tire:
Once you’ve got your flat tire off and your spare tire on, it’s time to determine if your tire can be repaired or replaced. Most people aren’t sure of the best answer, so make sure that you bring your tire to a quality tire repair center like Car Guys Auto Center. Our tire experts can look at your flat tire and recommend the best next steps.
These are the types of damage that will necessitate tire replacement. If your tires are low on tread, the best solution is almost always to have all four tires replaced. This is an expensive solution to a minor problem, but it can be the difference between a safe car and an unsafe car. If your tires have good tread you may only need to replace two tires, but you should never replace just one tire. This can cause your car to ride poorly, cause alignment and wear issues or damage wheels.
