Car tires undergo a great deal of punishment while traversing Michigan’s notoriously ill-repaired roadways. Add in four full seasons of weather, and your car tires become a very important safety issue if you ignore them long enough.
Tires can suffer many different types of damage that greatly shorten their lifespan. Broken steel belts, tread separation, foreign objects embedded in the tread, and many other road hazards could damage your tires. Fortunately, if your tires suffer damage, it often times is possible to patch and repair them. But, it takes a truly skilled mechanic to determine whether tires are good for another year, or if you need to schedule an appointment to repair or replace them.
If one or more of your car tires suffer damage, there is a good chance you can pay a mechanic to fix it. Most tire punctures and similar mishaps are repairable. All it takes is a skilled mechanic who can remove any foreign object, usually a nail or screw. The mechanic plugs the hole trims any excess plug material and refills the tire to manufacturer specifications.

If you have not inspected your tires for damage, you might be taking a big risk. It is very simple and free to inspect car tires for damage. If any damage is found, the mechanic can apply the appropriate remedy. In the case of a flat tire, that usually means plugging a hole and possibly removing a foreign object beforehand. Screws and nails are high on the list of foreign objects commonly found embedded in car tires. In such instances, though, a simple repair is in order. For more complicated problems, like broken steel belts, the mechanic likely will need to replace the entire tire.
