7 Ways to Prevent a Flat Tire

There’s never a good time to get a flat tire but they happen and become an issue you must deal with in the moment. If you find yourself with a flat tire, call TireForce, Calgary’s mobile tire service to come to your location to replace and/or repair your tires. There are things you can do however, to prevent getting stuck in this situation. Here are some of TireForce’s tips! 1-Check tires for wear It is a good habit to get into to check your tires regularly for wear and tear. Your tire’s tread can become thin from fast starts, frequent stopping and starting, and aggressive stops. This can wear away at your tires’s tread unevenly, and good thing to keep an eye on. 2-Keep your tires inflated With changing temperatures in Calgary, air pressure changes too and this affects your tires. Keep your tires inflated at the correct pressure because too much air in your tire can make for a rough ride, but too little air in your tire can wear down your tire’s tread and increase your fuel consumption. If you have questions about what pressure is right for your wheels, call TireForce and we will come out to help you! 3-Brake check Check your car’s brakes often and regularly. Your wheels get worn down more when brakes are tightly adjusted, so ensuring your brakes are adjusted correctly is important. 4-Can of compressed air/hand pump Keep a can of compressed air or pump handy in your trunk in the event that you get a flat tire and it needs some air. 5-Check your spare tire We don’t often think about the spare tire in our car, until we need to use it, and then it suddenly becomes much more important. Check your tire from time to time to ensure it has the required air pressure needed and no defects such as bulges, tears, or cracks in the sidewall. Should you need to put your spare tire on, avoid driving on it over long distances and drive slow. Going over 50 km/h on your spare tire is definitely not advised. 6-Good Tread TireForce can help you with the purchase of new tires for your car. We can advise you which tires have the best thick thread which is important, as it is puncture resistant. Ask our team of tire experts to help you out and when you’ve decided which tires you want, TireForce can deliver them to you as part of our mobile tire service in Calgary. 7-Watch the road You can’t always see the small things that will get you,but avoiding debris in the road you may see is helpful. Streets around construction sites will have a higher chance of glass, nails, or screws, so avoiding those areas if possible, is helpful. Flat tires are a pain but make it easier on yourself and call TireForce for your tire repair and tire service in Calgary and our team will come to your location at a time that suits you. We are your ‘tire service near me’ because you can’t get any closer than your home, work, or where ever else you may be.
