Tire Repair 101

M&M Automotive understands that tires can be pricey and a surprise expense.  This is why we offer tire repair solutions. At times, you may not need a brand new tire and repairing the damaged tire may be a better option to save you money.

There are a number of reasons why your tire may seem to be flatter than normal, resulting in a tire repair. Perhaps, the plug was not installed correctly by another mechanic or maybe the plug wasn’t the best solution. Did you know that plugs work best for repair when the angle of the penetrating object is straight and when the puncture is between treads? Other types of puncturing may require a patch, which is often completed in conjunction with a plug. Another issue, the tire could have a leak. Just because there isn’t something sticking in the tire doesn’t mean there was not a second puncture.
