It’s been a long day at work, and you get home to find that your tyre has blown out. What do you do? It sounds like an easy question, but the answer is not so simple. There are many factors to consider when dealing with a flat tyre, such as whether it was caused by something on the road or if it is just wear and tear from driving too much. Driving on a flat tyre can cause irreparable damage to your car, which will cost more money than simply having us replace your tyre! Don’t be caught unprepared for this kind of situation again – call our experts now!
We all know that a flat tyre can be a major inconvenience. It’s important to have the right people on your side when it happens to you. If you’re in need of some assistance, contact our specialised tyre experts at RNM Tyres for all of your puncture needs. We will assess the damage and help you get back on the road again.
A flat tyre is generally caused by a puncture to a tubeless tyre’s casing, allowing air to escape and causing the tyre to deflate. The air may escape due to an object in the road penetrating a hole or puncture, such as nails. A flat tyre can also occur when there is a leak caused by faulty valves or seals that allow air to escape out of the tyre.
Here are some things you need to know about flat tyres:
A flat tyre will generally cause your car’s steering wheel and handling characteristics (e.g., responsive turning) to change dramatically. This makes it unsafe for driving on your current set of wheels and may even damage them permanently if driven too long – making this one situation where it’s better not only economically but also public safety-wise to have us replace the tyre rather than try patching up a puncture with more rubber.
How long will it take:
A puncture repair usually takes between 30 & 45 minutes to complete. The process involves removing the flat tyre from the rim, examining the extent of damage, patching and sealing the hole with a rubber valve stem repair kit. The tyre must be removed from the rim to perform a correct puncture repair. This allows for a complete inspection of the damage and to properly fill the puncture with an adhesive patch. The valve stem is also removed, which provides a gap for air and water to escape from the tire as it sits on our repair bench. A rubber valve stem plug kit is used in this process.
What will the cost be?
The cost of repairing your tyre will depend on how much damage has been caused by the puncture or other issue such as impact against objects like rocks or metal fragments becoming embedded into the treads of the tires. Of course, if you have any doubts about whether we can help fix that flat tyre, then contact us so that we may assess what type of service would be appropriate given your circumstances.
The most common cause for a punctured tyre is:
– A sharp object hitting the car’s wheel or driving over something that pokes through their treads like nails, screws etc., can be avoided by paying attention to what you are doing on your drive (e.g., checking under your tyre before heading out). This also includes other drivers who may have hit your tyres from behind while driving too close to slow down in time.
Tyres are one of the most important parts of your vehicle. Without tyres, you would not be able to drive anywhere! This is why it’s vital that you always have a professional assess any tyre damage as soon as possible. We can help with all of your tyre puncture needs.
