Got A Flat? Repairing vs. Replacing Flat Tires

Depending on the age of the tires, and the damage from the flat, you’re probably curious if you can repair the damaged tire or if you need to replace the tire. Several factors play into replacing or repairing a flat tire, including the location of the damage, the age of the tire, and the amount of tire tread remaining. 

The best way to determine if the tire needs to be replaced is to take your vehicle to a Mavis near you to have a professional assess the situation. 

What To Do With A Slow Tire Leak

You may notice that your tire has less air pressure than recommended, and if equipped, your car’s tire pressure monitoring system or TPMS has notified you. In this case, you can drive the car to your nearest Mavis to have a technician examine the cause of the slow leak. Like other tire repair situations, the technician will need to identify the location and severity of the leak to assess if the slow leak can be repaired or if a new tire is necessary.

Signs Your Tires Should Be Replaced 

There’s no one-size-fits-all time to replace your tires. Many variables affect the life of your tires, so it is important that you evaluate the condition of your tires periodically (say, every change in season or every oil change). When evaluating your tires, you should look at air pressure, tire tread remaining, and tire damage. If your tires are lacking tread, can’t hold adequate air pressure, or seem to be damaged, it may be time for a replacement.

If your car’s wheel alignment seems off, or there is wear and tear on one tire more than others, it is a good time to have your tires checked to see if they need to be replaced.

Cost For Flat Tire Repair vs. Replacement

Depending on the situation, you may need to evaluate the cost between a flat tire repair and a tire replacement. The total cost of repair vs. replacement varies based on your vehicle, tire size, and type of tire. 

Flat tire repair is usually more cost-effective than a total replacement, but there may be so much damage that there's no other option but to remove the damaged tire and replace it with a new tire. 

When replacing a single tire, it is important to understand the condition of the other tires, as well. Based on manufacturer’s recommendations, you may need to replace more than one tire at a time. Regular maintenance, including a tire rotation, on your vehicle and tires, will help them last longer. At Mavis, we have great deals on tires from trusted brands.
