Discovering a flat tire can ruin your day. The inconvenience of the flat, coupled with the potential expenses related to it, don’t usually fit in with your plans or budget. Whether it is a leaky valve stem or a tire puncture, Al and Sons Automotive’s tire repair service can help you diagnose the source of the problem, and can repair or replace your flat quickly and painlessly.
Our automotive professionals will help you make an educated decision on whether your tire is a candidate for repair, or if it just simply needs to be replaced. A puncture, split, or cut less than a ¼ inch in the tread can be repaired utilizing patches or plugs. While assessing the problem, it is also important to check the usable tire tread depth. If there is less than 1/16 of an inch of tread remaining, your tire will need to be replaced. A plug is usually preferred when dealing with a puncture, while a patch is better suited for a small split or cut. Further, a cracked or split sidewall or a split in the bead (the part of your tire that sits on the wheel) can never be repaired, and should be replaced immediately. If you are a candidate for repair, our tire service professionals have the ability to seamlessly dismount, mount, balance and repair your tires properly and promptly so you don’t have the headache or fuss. If your best option is replacement, don’t sweat it, we can help with that as well.
Making the right decision when it comes to your tires is an important one to avoid a potentially dangerous tire failure in the future.
