Read more to know how to fix a flat tire without a spare.
Keep A Tire Repair Kit In The Boot Of Your Car.
These repair kits come really handy and can fix small holes or patches until you can drive down to the nearest service station. The kit usually includes a sealant and an air compressor.
Here are simple steps to how to patch a tire with a repair kit-
- Identify the tire that is losing air and get rid of the debris from the punctured part.
- Keep the tire on the rim. Expand the puncture hole slightly and lubricate it to prepare it for plug insertion. Insert the repair tool and the plug all the way into the puncture.
- Pull the tool from the puncture hole, leaving the plug in place in the tire.
- Trim the ends of the plug so that it is congruent with the tire wall.
Keep in mind that repair kits are designed to seal holes in the tread of the tire only, they are of not much use if the puncture is in the sidewall of the tire.
Invest In A Run- Flat Tire.
Run-flat tires are one of the smartest and most practical inventions of recent time.
In the case of punctures, they are still able to cover a certain distance at lower speeds, 50 mph is usually recommended. A run-flat tire buys you some time and approximately 50 miles in distance to reach the nearest service station.
Even in cases of a blowout, a run-flat tire offers stability and balance.
Just make it a habit to check air pressures in run-flat tires regularly.
