When A Tire is Repaired - Make Sure It's Done Right

April 23rd, 2014

What should you do if you get a blowout or punture in one of your tires.  Sure you can jam a plug in from the ourside of the tire, it'squick and cheap. Unfortunately, it is also potentially dangerous and it voids the warranty on ALL tire manufacturer's products including Goodyear, Dunlop, Kelly, Cooper and most other brands as well.

Flat-Tire-Repair-Barberton-OHA proper repair begins by removing the tire from the wheel and checking on the inside of the tire for damage.  Repairs can only be done on the main treaded section of the tire and not the sidewall or shoulder of the tire.  SS Tire's trained professionals will use a rubber stem or "plug" from the inside of the tire to seal the puncture and prevent any rusting of the steel belts.  The maximum size hole that can be plugged is 1/4 inch or 6mm. After inserting the plug the repair is completed by covering the plug with a patch.  This patch is chemically bonded to the inside of the tire.

You should check your air pressure once a month to assure that you are maximizing the life of your tire as well as your fuel economy.  If you see that one of your tires is slowly losing air, you should fix it right before its ruined.
