Flat Tire Repair

Having a flat tire can be scary and frustrating, leaving you with a feeling of despair, as you are stranded on the side of the road. You are not alone. We are here – just a phone call away. Is your car sitting on a flat tire? We recommended that you install your spare tire and bring it in to us for repair as driving on a flat or damaged tire not only presents a safety issue but can cause additional damage to the tire and / or rim possibly deeming it unrepairable. If your car has a flat tire give us a call at 865-463-2233 or stop by our shop so we can check your tire, determine the cause of the flat, and if repairable, fix your tire and get you safely back on the road. AutoCade has the professionals, as well as the products and equipment to dismount, mount, balance and repair the tire correctly and guarantee the repair for the life of the tire.

Why is it important to have my tire properly repaired?

If you’re driving on a tire that continuously loses air, it is very important to your safety and others on the road that you have it inspected immediately. A service professional should inspect the tire inside and out to determine whether it can be repaired or needs to be replaced. Flat tire repair services may help to:

How often should I inspect my tires?

You should inspect your tires regularly (at least once a month) for excessive or irregular tread wear (such as cupping), scrapes, cuts, bulges, cracks, impact damage, punctures (nails, screws, etc...), rocks or other debris embedded in the tread, or other damages. If you notice a bulge or a blister on the sidewall of a tire, you should replace that tire immediately. These are signs that lead to tire failure and could be dangerous. If any of these conditions are present, or if you are experiencing continuous pressure loss, the tire should be dismounted and inspected for damage on the inside and to determine if a repair can be made. Sometimes it is as simple as the valve stem, other times it needs closer inspection.

Finding The Leak

You willl need to fill a squirt bottle with a soap and water solution (liquid dish soap works great). Inflate the tire and then spray the entire tire with your bottle full of soapy water. As the solution runs down the tread of the tire you should notice a small volcano-like eruption of bubbles right where your puncture lies. Once you have found the hole in your tire, we recommend having a qualified tire professional inspect the tire and make a proper plug and patch repair if allowable by industry standards. Sometimes the damage is to close to the sidewall or to large to safely patch.
