Patches, Plugs, Tubes, and Bead Seal

• When the hole is near the sidewall - many experts require to replace the tire when it is puncture at the sidewall; as the plug or patch will not be able to completely seal the damage.

• You can expect a tire plug repair, if it is done correctly, to last the length of life of the tire. In other words, if you have your tire repaired at 10,000 miles and your tire lasts for 40,000 miles, then your tire plug should last for another 30,000 miles. At an average, you can expect a plug or patch to last 7-10 years if used properly.

• Plugs may serve as a temporary low speed solution that must be replaced with a proper repair as soon as it accrues.

• Decrease the air pressure in their tires. This makes the tread of the tire spread out, creating more surface area for the tire's tread to grip the terrain. If the pressure is too low, there may not be enough pressure to keep the bead on the wheel, thus causing the bead to pop off the wheel; this is often referred to as "losing a bead".

Balancing and Mount/Dismount

• Balanced tires can be the difference between a good or bad driving experience. Some cars (and drivers) are more sensitive to an out of balance tire than others, but no one is happy with a vibration.

• An out of balance tire can adversely affect ride quality, shorten the life of your tires, bearings, shocks and other suspension components.

• When you have a vibration that is dependent on speed, and usually becomes noticeable around 40-45 mph and increases as your speed increases, it's probably balance related.

• Mounting and balancing should be done by a professional, using equipment designed for the job; both tire beads are securely mounted. The wheel is not bent or damaged; there is no buildup of dirt between the hub and the wheel. All of the lugs have been properly torqued and the wheel is securely seated on the hub.

Valve Caps and Stems

•Valve Caps typically come with rubber seals that undoubtedly safeguards air from leaking out & any unwanted moisture from sneaking in. If someone ever loses or “accidentally” misplaces the Valve Cap, it should be replaced immediately.

•Valve Stems are a device that allows air in to inflate something, but neglects to let any air out. There are literally, a variety of different valve stems that are included on things like tires for your car, tires for your bike, & many other devices that require inflated tires to move

•You must know beforehand how much air you really need to put in. If you were to have any questions, the tire pressure should be stated somewhere along the tire or even in your vehicle’s owner manual. If there are leaks of any kind, that will cause your tire to slowly but surely lose pressure; it’ll even affect the performance of your tire.

•Do Not Drive On A Flat Tire: If you drive on a flat you are tarring the inside of the tires side wall. Causing it to weaken that can blow-out at any time while driving.
