Frequently Asked Questions About Tires & Tire Repair
Below are some commonly asked questions people ask us regarding flat tires. Don’t worry if you still have questions, simply call us at 336-993-7697 and we will answer those for you.
Is a patch always a solution for a flat tire?
No, not always. If punctured too deep, then a tire repair is likely not a good option. Also, if the tire has worn out tread which caused the tire to become flat, then even with a patch that is still an unsafe tire to drive on.
How much does it usually cost to patch up a tire?
First, we determine if your tire is patchable. See above answer. If not patchable, then you need a tire replacement. If it is a patch, then it would cost less than an entirely new tire. The price is dependent on the amount of time to patch the tire or the type of tire replacement your vehicle needs.
Are there signs before a tire goes flat?
Sometimes yes and sometimes no. Below are four typical signs of a pending flat tire.
Tire looks flat or low in air.
Tire pressure light comes on.
Worn tread on the tire.
Vehicle pulls to one side while driving.
What causes a flat tire?
In most cases, driving over a sharp object causes a flat tire. For example, driving over glass or a nail. Another cause is someone vandalizing your vehicle by puncturing your tire. Additionally, as mentioned above a worn tread often leads to a flat tire. Two mechanical issues we find that cause flat tires are an issue with the valve stem or a leaking tire bead. Loss of tire pressure also happens if a vehicle is inactive for an extensive period. Finally, hitting a curb has the potential to separate the tire from the rim causing a flat tire.
Can I prevent a flat tire?
Not always but there are certainly some preventive measures to attempt to avoid one. One of the best ways to avoid a flat tire is regularly checking your tire pressure. This is even more important if your vehicle does not have a tire pressure light to alert you of the issue. Not sure how to check your tire pressure? Be sure to read this article on the topic.
