Don’t Drive on a Faulty Tire
A flat or faulty tire can occur for a number of reasons. For instance it could be because of an built-in defect, incorrect air pressure, overuse or a puncture, or simply due to hitting a pothole or piece of glass on the side of the road. The fact of the matter is that a tire can be damaged in many different ways. The most important thing to remember is not to drive when your tire is flat or damaged.
Driving on a tire that is either flat, softened or defected in another way will not only further damage the tire itself, but could also lead to a range of related issues for other parts of your vehicle. For example, if you drive with a flat tire it can result in it degrading further and damaging the brakes pads, rotors and calipers which could impair your ability to stop the car when needed.
By the same token, if a faulty tire is not repaired or replaced in time then it can compromise the safety features of your fender, bumper and tire wall. This is not good and would require far more time and money than the initial tire repair job would have cost. More pressing is the fact that driving on a damaged tire can compromise the functionality of the suspension and transmission systems. This in turn can affect you and your family’s safety as well as the safety of other road users.
A Damaged Tire Doesn’t Have to Mean a Replacement Tire
A common misconception exists among Wapato drivers that a damaged tire automatically means it will need to be replaced. This isn’t true. In fact, in many circumstances a damaged tire can just as easily be repaired. This will not only save you time but will also ensure that you end up spending less on the problem.
