What factors impact tire repair?

In Tires and Wheelsby Steves Auto Repair and Tire

Many drivers have had the less-than-pleasant experience of realizing that they have a leaking or flat tire.

If you are able, your best bet is to Google “auto repair shop near me”, and head over.

Steve’s Auto Repair & Tire offers tire repair and goes by guidelines from the U.S. Tire Manufacturers Association.

When a vehicle is brought in, our technicians locate the damage and determine if it’s repairable. For tires that are, a patch plug is added from the inside.

We aren’t able to mend injuries that are on the inner or outer shoulder or the sidewall.

The angle is another factor in tire repair.

If it’s more than 45 degrees, it can’t be repaired.

Driving on a flat tire can also cause more damage and result in a tire being irreparable – even if the injury is in the center of the tread. 

Low tire pressure leads to heat buildup, which could cause a tire to come apart on the inside. This damage may be difficult to see just by looking at the outside.

Damage is also possible if a mechanic is careless when mounting tires.

They could tear the tire bead, a problem that is hidden until the tire is removed. 

It’s also important to keep in mind that manufacturers do not recommend tire repair on some run flat tires.

In addition to tire repair, we offer a wide selection of tires, including Goodyear.
