Flat Tire Repair Services
Making sure your tires are reliable is essential to safe driving throughout Calgary, AB and beyond. However, not many people know how to repair a flat tire themselves. Don’t worry, mateys! Tire Pirates can repair your tires using both tire plugs and patches as recommended by the Manufacturer’s Association. Tire sidewall damage can happen by scraping or bumping into curbs or potholes, causing a weakening of the sidewall that allows air to leak from the tires slowly. It’s not something easily noticed. If you are continually filling up your tires because they are mysteriously losing air, damage to the sidewall may be the culprit. Our crew can easily spot this thanks to their professional training and years of experience. There are several different situations where a rapid or annoying slow leak can originate. Bring your car in as soon as you notice it though to allow our crew to find and repair it quickly! Below are some examples of leaks we have seen at our tire repair shops:
- Rapid Leaks: Usually, this leak happens due to a puncture from different road hazards such as nails, screws, potholes, and other penetrating objects.
- Slow Leaks: The first place to check when you notice this type of leak is the wheel bead or valve stems. Damage to these areas is where the leak usually starts.
- Bead Leaks: Corrosion on the wheel or debris around where the tire attaches to the wheel usually causes a leak because it is not allowing the tire to make an airtight seal.
Repair or Replace Tires?
Our crew at Tire Pirates will find out why your tire isn’t allowing your car to perform its best. We will decide whether we can provide a flat tire repair or if you need a tire replacement for your safety. After our assessment, it is up to you to make the final decision. We won’t make you walk the plank should you decide not to use our recommendation. No matter your make, model, or year we can help you get the best tires for your vehicle. We have the knowledge to help decide if you can repair to save money or if you need to replace your tires. Even if you need to exchange them, you can count on us to offer the best prices for all-new tires. Here are some examples of when you will need a tire replacement:
- Overlapping Repair – If you have already patched and repaired an area and it becomes a problem again for leaks, this is when you would need an overlapping repair.
- Large punctures – If you experience any holes larger than 1/4 inch in diameter for passenger cars or 3/8 inch for light trucks, your tire needs to be replaced.
- Weakened sidewalls – If any damage occurs to the sidewall, you cannot repair this area of your tire because of how it fluctuates shape during your drive.
Seasonal Tire Storage
Seasonal tire storage is safe, convenient, cost-efficient, and saves you the mess, pain, and hassle of having to do it yourself. If you don’t have room in your garage or even your basement, bring your seasonal tires to our shop, and we can store them for you throughout the year. You can also get them swapped by our professional staff when the time comes!
