If your vehicle has a flat tire, it’s important to know whether it can be repaired or must be replaced.
If a puncture is in the shoulder or sidewall of your tire, you need to replace it. If the tire has been punctured in the tread area and no internal damage is found, the puncture can be repaired following industry guidelines.
Moore Tires Inc. can inspect your tire and determine if your tire can be safely repaired.
Flat tires can induce the rim of the tire to rest on the tire tread or on the ground, possibly triggering in loss of control of the vehicle or irrecoverable damage to the tire.
One of the most common causes for a flat tire is piercing of the tire by a sharp object, such as a nail, allowing air to escape. A slow leak can typically be repaired and re-inflated.
Moore Tires recommends several simple methods to catching a tire issue before it becomes costly or unsafe.
Look for unequal tire wear, which may be induced by excessive or too little air pressure, problems with alignment or suspension, or signal a need for a tire rotation.
Driving with a flat tire, especially at high speeds, may result in a fatal collision. These problems risk the possibility of a blowout, including the loss of control that can easily be incredibly unsafe.
