Flat tire? You need a New Orleans auto repair expert like those at Twin Tire to make sure it's fixed properly.
It always happens at the worst times. Like, when you're headed out to the Bayou Country Superfest. You come out of your home, all ready for a day of fun and find ... a flat tire. Just what you needed. You're one of the lucky ones because you have a spare tire. So you managed to get it changed, but now you've got a flat to fix.
Tire manufacturer Goodyear says, "It is very important to your safety to have it inspected immediately. A service professional should inspect the inside and out to determine whether tire repair is possible or if it needs to be replaced."
Goodyear says a professional can do several things: help to find the cause if your tire frequently goes flat or loses air; properly repair punctures in the tread; prevent further damage; and maintain tire pressure at the recommended levels.
A professional, like those at Twin Tire Auto Care, can also tell you when you need a new tire. Goodyear says, "You should replace your tire, instead of attempting to repair it, if you are dealing with any of the following situations:
"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 a tire has gone flat due to a blow out, that tire should be immediately replaced.
"If a tire has suffered from lacerations or other significant damage, you should replace a tire immediately rather than attempting to fix a flat tire."
