Tire Plug and Patch Repair Service Overview
Tire plug and patch repair service begin by locating and assessing the damage. We often know that a tire is damaged given the low air pressure but need to find the cause and verify that it qualifies for repair. This usually involves applying a soapy mixture to locate the damage, revealed by the bubbles created on the tire as the air escapes. We will remove obstructions stuck in the tire, such as nails, screws, or other objects. We apply a specialized plug and patch device that closes the puncture while sealing it powerfully. This restores air pressure retention and safety to specifications. Tire plug and patch repair services are approved by all major automakers and the U.S. Tire Manufacturers Association.
