Flat | New Orleans Auto Care

When you need a New Orleans auto care expert for tire repair, call on the New Orleans auto care pros at Twin Tire.

You were planning to go to the farmers market today. But your plans got sidetracked when you went outside and found that your car had a flat tire. And, because your car - like many these days - doesn't have a spare, you're stuck waiting for a tow so you can get it fixed.

You wish there was some way you could prevent tires from going flat. 

Well, that's impossible because stuff happens - you run over a nail or the tire wears out - but, according to yellowpages.ca, there are ways to make it less likely that your tires will go flat.

The first - and most important - tip regards tire care: Make sure you keep your tires properly inflated by regularly checking and adjusting your tire pressure. 

"Even a properly installed, good tire will lose air pressure over time, and cooler temperatures will cause a drop in tire pressure," yellowpages.ca says. "Filling tires to the proper pressure will keep you safe and save you money — consider that a tire's lifespan may be shortened by as much as 75 per cent if it's inflated to only 80 per cent of the optimum pressure."

The other tips have to do with tire repair: Deal with a puncture on the road and get your tire repaired as soon as possible.

"A puncture needn't mean a new tire — you may be able to get a repair for a fraction of the cost of a replacement," yellowpages.ca explains. "Tires can be repaired as long as the puncture is in the main area of the tire's tread, and you haven't driven for long on the flat or part-deflated tire."

Yellowpages.ca adds, "A screw or nail may get lodged in your tire without deflating it. Don't ignore the problem — the nail can move around while you're driving and cause a catastrophic blowout."
