What to do After a Flat Tire
Once you notice your tire is flat, the first thing to do is stop driving on it and pull over. If it is a slow leak, it can be tempting to add air to the tire and keep driving, but it is important to note that the longer you drive on a tire that is flat or going flat, the more damage you do to the tire, the rim, and even the suspension of your car.
Driving on a flat also impacts the way your car handles, the comfort of the ride, and your ability to maneuver and react in traffic situations. Additionally, driving on a flat tire can damage the rotors, the rim, and other parts of the car and make it impossible to put on a new tire without extensive repairs.
A sudden blowout is even more dangerous as it can cause you to lose control of your vehicle while driving. It is imperative not to continue driving if a blowout happens because it will almost certainly damage your vehicle and render it undrivable.
Once you pull over off of the road and out of the way of traffic, the next step is to turn on your emergency flashers and stay with your vehicle. At this time, it’s a good idea to inspect your vehicle to see the extent of the damage and how flat the tire is. This will give you a good indication of whether or not the tire can be patched or needs to be changed. If you’re unsure of whether or not your tire can be repaired, don’t worry. Our highly trained tow truck drivers will be able to help you determine the best course of action.
Once you’ve inspected the damage, the next step is to locate your spare tire. They are often found attached to the back of vehicles (for SUVs and Hatchbacks), in the trunk, or under the rear of the car.
After finding the tire, you’re ready to call us for assistance. With just a little information, our drivers will be dispatched to your location quickly and will work diligently to get you back on the road again.
If the tire can be repaired, our driver will do what is necessary to patch the tire so that you can continue on your way, but it’s important to remember that a patch is temporary, so you’ll want to get to your mechanic or tire shop right away.
If the tire needs to be changed, the driver will swap your flat tire for your spare. If your tire is flat or blown out and can’t be changed, or you don’t have a spare, we can still tow you to the location of your choice. Never fear having a flat tire again with Delray Beach 24/7 Towing!
