What to do in case of a flat tire: when a flat tire occurs, drivers are advise to slow down gradually and pull of the road in a safe place as soon as possible. Continuing to drive after a tire becomes flat may be extremely hazardous. 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 loww on air tire, especially at higher speeds, is dangerous. Since controlling the vehicle becomes more difficult, this may result in a serious, potential deadly accident.
There are multiple ways to repair a flat tire, including using a patch or plug.
The patch of repair is commonly used in automotive repairs shops, with some shops having a policy against patching should the tire's thread be below what would be considered safe, if the patch is too close to a previous patch, if there are more than two patches performed previously, if the amount of punctures requires more than two patches, if the punctures requiring a patch are too close to each other, and finally if the puncture is too close to the sidewall of the tire. A patch is performed by first removing the tire from the wheel, marking the location pf the puncture (tipically with a dedicated "tire crayon"), removing the punture, 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.
An alternative patch, 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.
The final method, the 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, which is typically supplied with a kit the plug came in. Many automotive technicians consider plugs to be less reliable than patching, though more reliable that 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.
Tires can leak air due to a variety of reasons. These include, but are not limited to: damage to the wheel itself, a damaged valve system, a puncture in the tire (which sometimes can be hard to find if the puncture didn't embed itself in the tire, which among other reasons can happen by running over a board with nails sticking out, for example) and improper installation of the tire, which could involve the bead of the tire being cut when installed with excessive force.
