Flat Tire Repair

Photo of flat tire repairWhen your vehicle has a flat tire, it is immobile, and a vehicle that can’t move, can’t help you get where you need to go. Luckily flat tires are a relatively simple fix. Often, flat tires are the result of a slow leak caused by a small puncture that allows air to escape until your tire goes flat. Issues like these can be fixed by flat tire repair services, removing the object that has punctured your tire and patching the hole with rubber that matches your tire.

Tire Pressure and Driver Safety

Incorrectly inflated tires make it more difficult for drivers to control their vehicles in all road conditions. In fact, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that roughly 660 fatal road accidents are caused by under-inflated tires every year. This can lead to the need for flat tire repair. When your vehicle’s tires are under-inflated, you can expect:

  • Sliding and skidding around sharp curves and any curves taken at high speeds.
  • Hydroplaning across wet roads
  • Loss of control and eventual crash from a blowout

Your TPMS, or Tire Pressure Monitoring System, can help you keep an eye on your tire pressure and prevent the need for flat tire repair. This system monitors your tire pressure and alerts you of problems through a yellow exclamation point light on your dashboard. If your TPMS light is activated by a change in tire pressure, it will come on and remain on until your tire pressure is returned to proper levels.

However, if the TPMS light flashes on for one second and off for three-second intervals, then the TPMS is malfunctioning. Spartan Auto Care is your local tire specialists in Springfield and West Springfield, MA completing flat tire repair and tire rotation for your vehicle. For your TPMS or flat tire repair service, give us a call today at (413) 781-2480 to schedule an appointment.
