Tire Change – Technicians Available Always on Time
A flat tire can occur anywhere, anytime. Getting a flat tire while you are headed to an important meeting or event is truly an unfortunate situation. It could be even worse if you experience it on the road late at night.
Safely replacing a blown or flat tire on the side of the road is a skill not everyone possesses. Furthermore, even if you are comfortable and familiar with the procedure, sometimes getting down on the ground and dirty may be disruptive to your plans – if you are headed to a professional event, for instance. While you can’t prevent a flat tire, you can definitely plan ahead of time so that you can get help for a quick tire change regardless of the location you may be in.
At Auto Tow Club, we have experienced technicians who can help you with your tire change and get you out of trouble quickly. Our tire change services are available anytime of the day or night, all year long – including national holidays. We serve clients across all fifty United States.
Why You May Need Emergency Tire Change
You can get a flat tire for a number of reasons. For your knowledge, some of the most common ones are as follows:
Puncture: You got a hole from a nail or glass or other damaging components. This causes air to escape relatively quickly, causing a flat tire.
Bad Valve Stem: Often, tire problems are caused due to the failure of the valve stem. The valve stem, as you may know, is the tiny component that remains attached to your tire and needs unscrewing every time you inflate it. When this valve stem is damaged, air leaks out and you have a flat tire as a result.
The Actual Wheel: The mounting surface of your wheel may be deformed, so the tire cannot sit on it properly, causing air to escape. If this happens to be the reason for your flat tire, you’ll need to take your vehicle to a body shop for further servicing after the tire change has been done.
Tire Blowout: Due to damage by an object on the road, your tire may explode, leaving nothing but metal behind. This is especially common when driving at high speeds, such as would be appropriate on the interstate.
Worn or Ripped Tire: Never let ripped tire or worn areas on the side of the tire go unnoticed. A rubbed or worn tire isn’t just the reason for a flat tire, but it could also land you in a dangerous situation.
Over-Pumped Tire: Every tire has a pressure limit. It’s important that you always keep your tires at the right pressure. When your tires are inflated beyond their optimum limit, you can get a flat tire anytime. Another side-effect of maximum pressure is that your tires will wear out over a short period of time.
Tire Bead Leaks: The edge of a tire that sits on the rim is referred to as the tire bead. In many cases of a flat tire, the tire bead is the culprit. Air continues to leak out from the tire bead and ultimately you have a flat tire.
What Happens During Our Tire Change Service
As soon as you give Auto Tow Club a call for a tire change, we dispatch an experienced technician to your exact location whether in the middle of a metro area or on a rural back road. Upon arrival, the technician will evaluate the situation, find out what’s wrong and then begin the tire change process.
If you have an inflated spare tire in or on your vehicle, that tire will be used to replace the blown out or damaged tire. However, if you are not prepared with a spare tire, we can tow your car to the tire shop. We’ll then take a closer look at the other tires of your vehicle to prevent a similar problem from happening in the near future with any one of your three remaining tires.
