Calderon Tow & Auto can come to your assistance and change your tire for you, quickly and efficiently to get you back on the road again, if you lack the skills, know-how, or tools needed for the job. There are a number of causes to having a flat tire. The common contribution to flat tires is what we at Calderon Tow & Auto would like to share today.
Damage to Tire Sidewall
Flat tires are a common result of sidewall damage. The tire is then deemed irreparable and will require replacing when the sidewall of the tire becomes damaged. When it separates the layers on the sides of the tire that allow for flexibility and movement is sidewall damage. By cutting into the curb at just the right angle is generally what causes sidewall damage. The damage to the sidewall is caused by taking a turn too fast the tire gets scraped on the curb creating friction. Your tire can get blow out with enough pressure and rapid damage.
Punctured Tire Hole
Being fairly common is fallen debris on parking lots, the roads, even your driveway or garage floor. A flat tire results from rolling over the top of any of these objects at just the right angle will undoubtedly. Most commonly the industrial staples, nails, and screws is the offending debris that causes the puncture holes. It can still inflict enough damage the tread and compromise the structural integrity of the tire, though glass is not durable enough to puncture a hole in the tire. If the nail or other object gets dislodged from your tire, leaks depending on how big the hole, can stream low, to moderate, to rapid. If you put air in your tire and it loses the PSI quickly soon thereafter, a leak becomes obvious. You can probably get your car there in time before additional damage to the tire occurs if the leak is slow if you are near a mechanic or a tire specialist. You can contact your roadside assistance company, like Calderon Tow & Auto, if you need assistance changing the tire to a spare or need a tow.
Other Causes of Flat Tires
Poor installation, old, “balding”, or the spout is not properly sealed are other reasons as tires can become flat for a number of reasons. Doing these things can help you avoid being in traffic before you realize the tire is leaking air, resulting in a flat tire; get in the habit of taking the opportunity to inspect the condition of your tires, and if you have a tire air gauge handy, ensure the pressure is adequate before getting into the vehicle.
