What to do in case of a flat tire: When a flat tire occurs, drivers are advised to slow down gradually and pull of the road in a safe place as soon as possible. If there is any chance of patching a leak and restoring a tire, it will be diminished if the car continues to be driven. Continuing to drive may also cause damage to the wheel, the hub assembly, or other parts of the vehicle since they can come in contact with the road surface. Driving with a flat tire, especially at higher speeds, is also extremely dangerous.
There are multiple ways to repair a flat tire, including using a patch or plug.
A patch is commonly used in automotive repairs shops. A patch is performed by first removing the tire from the wheel, preparing the surface using an angle grinder, applying rubber cement to the prepped area, applying the patch, and then pressing it onto the surface with a tire stitcher.
A tire plug is able to be performed without removing the tire from the wheel. The puncture is removed from the tire, and a plug coated in rubber cement is then inserted with a handle. Many automotive technicians consider plugs to be less reliable than patching, though more reliable than tire sealant. A tire plug is a good idea for those who notice a puncture in a tire that they aren't able to professionally repair at the time.
An alternative considered by some to be safer and more reliable, is a combination patch and plug. This patch is manufactured with a plug built into it, applying this patch is done very similarly to the way a regular patch is applied except with a few more steps. The additional steps include drilling a hole at the location of the puncture so the plug can be pulled through it, as well as cutting off the excess plug from the outside of the tire.
Tires can leak air due to: damage to the wheel itself, a damaged valve system, a puncture in the tire, and improper installation of the tire which could involve the bead of the tire being cut if installed with excessive force.
