Instances Where Tire Repair Is Necessary

If you regularly have to add air to your tire, it is a clear sign that your tire needs a professional inspection. Continuing to drive with leaking or damaged tires could result in a blowout and loss of control of your vehicle.

At Parra Car Care, we understand that tires are expensive, so we will thoroughly inspect your tire to determine whether or not it can be safely repaired. Certain criteria will determine whether we can repair your vehicle's tire. Unsafe tire repair could lead to a sudden loss of tire pressure and loss of control of your vehicle.

Common Types of Tire Repair

There are two common types of tire repair:

Tire Patch 

When a tire patch is performed, one of our professionals will first inspect your tire to determine the location and extent of the damage. A tire patch can likely be performed if the puncture is less than one inch in diameter and located on the crown (the center) of your tire. 

Valve Stem Repair

There are times when your tire may be losing air, but you can’t seem to find what’s causing the leak. The culprit could be a leaking valve stem. As the entry point where air is added to your tires, this stem can be prone to damage. Although your valve stem is designed to be discreet, the fact that it protrudes from the side of your tire makes it liable to damage if you hit a pothole or a curb.

Not All Tire Damage Can Be Repaired 

Although our experts provide five-star tire repair services, there are types of tire damage that are not repairable and always require a tire replacement:

  • Holes near the sidewall
  • Damage to the sidewall
  • Tire bubbles
  • Uneven tire wear
  • Bald tires

How To Avoid Tire Repair

There are times when you simply can't avoid damage to your tire. However, here are a few tips to get the most life out of your tires and avoid premature replacement:

Keep Your Tires Correctly Inflated

Many drivers unintentionally damage their tires by driving with them either under- or over-inflated. We recommend checking your tire pressure about once per week to ensure your tires are running with the proper PSI. Your recommended tire pressure information is on your driver's door sill.

Keep Your Tires Rotated

We recommend rotating your tires every 10,000 miles. This helps to promote even tire wear and helps to maximize the life of your tires. 

Keep Your Tires Balanced

Tire imbalances can cause your tire tread to wear prematurely. We recommend getting a tire balancing every 12,000 miles to ensure that your tires operate as smoothly as possible. 

Get a Wheel Alignment

A wheel alignment helps maximize your tires’ life span by ensuring that your wheels point perfectly straight. We recommend bringing your vehicle in for a wheel alignment every two to three years to guarantee your tires wear as evenly as possible.

Tire Repair FAQs

Should you repair a tire or replace it?

In order to determine whether or not a tire can be repaired or replaced, one of our expert mechanics must first inspect the damage. The eligibility for tire repair will depend on the type of damage your tire has sustained. Not all types of tire damage are repairable:

Repairable tire damage:

  • Tire puncture
  • Valve stem leak

Types of damage that cannot be repaired

  • Slices to your tire
  • Punctures to the sidewall
  • Bubbles in the sidewall
  • Uneven tire wear
  • Bald tires

Whether you are in need of tire balancing or have tire damage and you would like to know if it is eligible for repair, schedule an appointment at Parra Car Care today. Our experts will have you back on the road in no time.

Is it OK to replace just one tire?

If your tires are fairly new and your tire suffers irreparable damage, it is generally OK to replace just one tire. However, if your tires are aging or have low tire tread, we do not recommend replacing just one tire. When driving, it’s important that your vehicle has equal grip on all four wheels. Having just one tire that is of a different tread depth can cause your vehicle to grip the road unevenly, which could result in loss of control and a potential collision.

Do all four tires need to match?

We strongly recommend that all four of your tires match. Because tires perform differently depending on their size, brand, and type, having different tires on your vehicle could cause your vehicle to perform abnormally and become unsafe to drive.

Driving with different tires can cause slippage, and the uneven grip can cause your vehicle to pull to one side when accelerating, braking, and even turning. If possible, try to keep all four of your tires the same size, brand, type, and condition.

Is it OK to buy two tires instead of four?

There are times when purchasing two tires is perfectly fine for your vehicle. This is especially true for vehicles with staggered wheels where a tire rotation is not possible. On vehicles with staggered wheels, two wheels are often a different size than the other two. This is especially common on sports cars that have wider wheels in the rear for added traction and stability. For vehicles with staggered wheels, purchasing just two tires is normal and will not hinder the performance of your vehicle.

How many miles should tires last?

With regular use, a set of all-season tires should last about five to seven years, or between 50,000 and 80,000 miles. However, the life of your tires will depend largely on your driving style and whether or not your tires are wearing evenly. For example, in vehicles where a tire alignment is needed, tires may need to be replaced after just 10,000 miles.

What are the four common symptoms of tire problems?

If you notice any of these four common symptoms of tire problems, we highly recommend bringing your vehicle into Parra Car Care for an immediate inspection:

  1. Tire Cracks. Cracks are a common side effect of aging. Your tires are made of a rubber compound that is designed to withstand impact and absorb the many bumps that are in the road. However, as this rubber compound ages, it begins to dry and become less flexible. Tiny cracks or a gray, hazy appearance could be a sign that your tires are aging and need to be replaced.
  2. Uneven Tread Wear. Uneven tread wear is a telltale sign that your tires need to be aligned. Uneven tread wear could result in a blowout and loss of control of your vehicle. Oftentimes, drivers may not know that their tires are wearing unevenly because excess wear fatigue sometimes displays itself on the very inner edge of your tires.
  3. Bulges/Bubbles. Bulges or bubbles in your tire are often the result of the impact that has caused your tires to lose their shape. These bulges or bubbles are weak spots that can make your tires more prone to blowouts.
  4. Tire Vibrations. Tire vibration is often a sign of misaligned tires. Tires that are being dragged or rolling on an unnatural axis can cause vibrations to enter the cabin. This can be a telltale sign that your tires need to be rebalanced or realigned.
