Tire Repair

tire-repairThe most obvious indication of tire damage is loss of air pressure, but that loss of pressure could have several results. Your tire could slowly leak air, or in extreme cases, you'll have a blowout. Carefully check the treads, the sidewall and the tire bead under the edge of the rim. You'll need to find out why the tire deflated in the first place. Sometimes it's easier to examine the tire once you've removed it from your vehicle.

Most flats are caused by a puncture. If your tire is flat due to a puncture, cut or split less than 1/4 inch in length (located in the tread), it may be repaired using various methods including patches and plugs. It's important to check the usable tread depth remaining before attempting a repair – tires with less than 1/16 inch of viable tread depth should be replaced.

For small punctures of up to 1/4 inch in diameter, a plug often works better than a patch. Patches are more suitable for cuts, splits or abrasions (usually called "curb rash") on the tire.

Non-Repairable Damage? Time for a Replacement

If you have a split or cracked sidewall, your tire cannot be repaired safely, so you'll need to replace the tire. If your bead (the area of the tire that sits on the wheel) is split or cracked, you'll have to replace the tire. Check your wheels closely – if you have a problem with the wheel, that may be the cause of your tire damage – repair it, or replace it if it is badly bent, rusted or corroded.
