Tire Rotation Service


Tire rotation is the practice of moving tires from one position on the vehicle to another to ensure even wear and extend the life of the tires. Here are some signs that your tires may need to be rotated:


  • Uneven tread wear: Check the tread on each tire. If you notice that the tread is worn more on one side than the other, or if there is more wear on the front tires than the rear tires, it may be time for a rotation.


  • Vibration or shaking: If you feel a vibration or shaking in the steering wheel or the car itself, it could be a sign that your tires are wearing unevenly and need to be rotated.


  • Increased road noise: As your tires wear unevenly, they may start to produce more road noise than usual. If you notice that your tires are getting louder, it may be time for a rotation.


We generally recommend to have tire rotation every 6,000 to 8,000 kilometers, or every six months, whichever comes first. However, it's important to check your vehicle's owner manual for specific recommendations based on your make and model. Additionally, if you notice any of the signs above, it's a good idea to have a tire rotation sooner rather than later.

Most Common Flat Tire Repairs


Some of the more common flat tire repair we perform include:



As simple as a flat tire repair may be, its serious business and must follow safety protocol to ensure tire safety with every repair.



Where is The Flat Tire Leaking From?


A flat tire leak is caused by many factor and can come from several places, including:


  • the valve stem

  • a tire puncture

  • around the rim

  • sidewall damage

  • steel tire belt


To determine the cause of a flat tire leak, you can uninstall the tire and use a watery soapy substance to splash over the tire and look for air bubbles. If you prefer to have the flat tire repair rather than DIY, give us a call and tell us the problem with your flat. We'll do our best to advise you.


Repairing a tire puncture. As long as the puncture is ¼ inch or smaller and the hole is located on the tread itself rather than the sidewall of the tire, the tire can be repaired. Otherwise replacing a new tire is required.


If a repair is possible we fit a tire plug or patch the inner tire surface to seal the puncture.


Plugging or patching a punctured tire is a durable solution to fix a flat and will likely last the remaining life of the tire. 


A leaky valve stem replacement is another frequent tire repair. In some cases the rubber seat of the valve stem may corrode or the inner valve leaks air. A simple inexpensive fix is to replace the leaky tire valve stem. 


Corrosion build up on the inner rim is where the tire seals (beads) on the rim. Sometimes, when replacing tires a noticeable rust build up has formed between the rim and tire seal area and needs resurfacing or sanding to properly clean the area where the tire and rim meet. If air is leaking around the tire, cleaning the rim surface should stop the leak.



Repair Or Replace A Flat Tire?


A flat tire repair is an unexpected event, but it is important to know when a tire should be replaced rather than rather than plugged or patched.. It's essential to consider the limitations of each method and replace the tire if it has been repaired multiple times or has punctures in multiple locations.



Flat Tire Repair - Causes


The most common flat tire repair at our garage include a nail, screw, tire puncture, leaking air from the rim or tire valve and sidewall tire damage.



Plugging vs Patching A Flat Tire


Assuming the puncture is repairable, the tire can be plugged or patched. A plug is a simple repair method that involves inserting a rubber plug into the hole in the tire, which seals the hole and prevents air from leaking out. A patch, on the other hand, involves removing the tire from the rim, applying a patch to the inside of the tire, and then remounting the tire onto the rim.


While both methods can be effective in repairing a punctured tire, there are some limitations to consider. Plugs are not recommended for punctures located in the tire's shoulder or sidewall and should only be used for small punctures located in the tread area's center. Patches are a more robust repair method and can be used for punctures located in the tire's tread area or sidewall.

However, it's important to note that a repaired tire is never as reliable or safe as a new tire. Repaired tires have a higher risk of failure, especially if they have been repaired multiple times. If the tire has been repaired more than once or has punctures in multiple locations, it is recommended that it be replaced.

Flat tire repair means eliminating the dangers associated with a flat tire.


This can be done in numerous ways, but we must first understand how a typical tire degrades and becomes flat to begin with.


A punctured or damaged tire usually starts losing air gradually as opposed to all at once. The tire will show you signs of slow leakage before it finally becomes flat.


This is important to notice if you are not aware of how fast tires can lose air, as the tire could go flat while you are driving. The best way to avoid this is to check your tire's pressure on a regular basis and know which level you should keep them at.

Is It Safe To Drive On A Flat Tire?


Road debris and conditions are a tires number one enemy. Hazards such as rocks, nails, screws and other sharp objects on the roadway can puncture or even blow out a tire. If your tire gets a flat, it is important that you refrain from driving on a flat tire.


This will potentially damage the tire beyond repair and require a replacement tire. The quicker you spot a flat and bring the vehicle for inspection the more likely it is for a successful tire repair service to be performed. Driving on a flat for too long can cause irreversible damage.


As the tire deflates, the wheel will come into closer contact with the ground, potentially damaging the tire sidewall and the rim. If this happens, you may need to buy new tires. It is important to understand that repairing a flat is time sensitive.


The sooner you are able to bring a damaged tire in for repair, the more likely it is that the tire can be saved.



Run Flat Tire Repair


Run flat tire repair generally involves a tire replacement. The technology of run flat tires is such that when a puncture, leak or damage to the tire occurs, repairing a run flat is in some cases not advised by the manufacturer. Run-flat tire versus a non-run-flat tire? The general consensus by tire manufacturers and auto makers is a run-flat’s engineering makes them more difficult to mount and remove from the rim.


The jury is still out on whether a run flat tire can be repaired. Checking the owners manual for vehicle specific guidelines on replacing or repairing a run flat is recommended. As an example, Michelin suggests its run-flat tires - Zero Pressure can be repaired but only under certain conditions. BMW on the other hand says repairing a run flat is not an option and replacement is required.
