How to Prevent a Flat Tire

The occasional flat tire is inevitable, but there are a few things you can do to reduce your chances of this happening. Flat tires are not only inconvenient, they can also create dangerous situations when your tire goes out while on the go. Try to avoid an accident that turns your vehicle into a junk car in Chicago by taking all of the preventative measure necessary.

Keep Your Tires Inflated

Make sure your tires are inflated to the right pressure. Too much pressure makes for a harder to navigate, rougher ride. On the other hand, too little pressure can cause accelerated and uneven wear on your tires.

Avoid Construction Sites

Steer clear of streets that are near construction sites, like new housing developments or office spaces. It’s not uncommon for sharp objects like nails, screws, or glass to be in the street. If you’re unlucky enough to drive over one at just the right angle, you may end up with a flat.

Quality Tread

When shopping around for new tires, look for ones with a thick tread that is puncture resistant. These may be more expensive, but the cost of consistently replacing tires is much higher.

Monitor Your Spare

Keep an eye on your spare tire to ensure that is has the required air pressure and no defects. If you find that the spare is damaged, defective, or missing altogether, don’t hesitate to replace it. You never want to be without a spare tire in case of an emergency.

I got my windshield replaced recently and it took less than an hour. Then as I was driving home the rear view mirror fell off. It kept doing it so I rode back and they replaced it. No haggling or anything. With this kind of service I will keep coming back. I am a repeat customer as they do not dissapoint!

Decent prices on the parts you need. Honest and informative workers. Reasonable and efficient service. They’re also pretty well stocked and will likely have the part you need for just about any replacement or repair. If not, they’ll order it for you and usually have it in a day or so. Overall, no real complaints on my end. I’d recommend this place.
