Flat Tire Repairs in Hollis & Biddeford, ME

Jason's Auto Shop

People across the globe experience flat tires every day. However, many choose to ignore slow leaks until the problem becomes unmanageable. Jason’s Auto Service fixes your flat tires quickly to ensure they don’t get damaged. Low tire pressure will put added stress on the tire structure, causing it to break down before time. A flat tire can be caused by potholes, punctures, sharp objects, etc. It will result in low tire pressure that needs to be addressed immediately. Our seasoned tire repair experts can use a tire puncture patch to fix your flat tire and keep you safe.

Dangers of a Flat Tire

A flat tire can induce the tire’s rim to rest on its tread or the ground, possibly resulting in loss of control of the vehicle or irreparable damage to the tire. One of the most common causes of a flat tire is the tire getting pierced by a sharp object, such as a nail, pointy stone, or glass shards, which lets air escape the tire. Depending on the size of the slit, your tire might deflate quickly or slowly, which will cause the following issues:

  • Failing of the valve stem
  • Rubbing of the tire against the road, resulting in further rips and separation of the tire and rim 
  • Air escaping from the valve or deliberate puncturing causing damage
  • Excessive tire tread wear, which can cause explosive tire failure and result in roadway debris tearing through the tire

Damaged tires that have a slow leak can be easily fixed and re-inflated. Meanwhile, tires with worn treads will need to be changed. You can bring your damaged tire in, and we will assess the condition to let you know whether it can be repaired or will it need to be replaced.
