Tire Repair in Burlington Ontario

When your tires are in need of repair, RS Auto Clinic can fix the problem and get you back on the road.

The most common causes of flat tires:

#1: Puncture

Flat tires are often the result of punctures caused by sharp objects on the road such as nails and screws. There are three fundamental steps that must be taken to properly repair a puncture:

  • remove the tire to evaluate the damage,
  • reestablish an airtight seal of the tire's inner liner, and
  • fill the path taken by the object that punctured the tire.

Simply patching the tire is not enough to effectively repair the tire, as moisture can enter the tire at the point of injury and cause the tire's steel belts to rust. By patching the inner liner and plugging the puncture, the tire will be ready to roll for years to come.

#2: Valve Stem Leak

The valve stem is the protruding component that allows you to fill your tires with air. Many valve stems are made of rubber which can deteriorate and crack over time due to normal wear and tear, weather, dirt, and exposure to sunlight. This leads to air escaping from the tire and you will slowly get a flat tire. To fix this, we extract the old valve stem and replace it with a new one. We also recommend getting your valve stems replaced when you have most tire services performed.

Valve Stem TPMS

TPMS, or Tire Pressure Monitoring System, is a technology that uses sensors located inside the valve stem to detect and warn drivers when tire pressure is significantly under inflated. Since September 2007, the U.S. has required that all new light vehicles sold in the U.S. must be equipped with a TPMS. Although not officially a requirement in Canada, many Canadian automobile manufacturers include a TPMS system as either standard or optional equipment.

If your vehicle has TPMS, we will replace your TPMS kit as well as reset and test your TPMS system.

#3: Bead Leak

A bead leak occurs when air leaks between the tire and rim. This is especially common if you have porous alloy rims. This type of leak can be fixed by using a sealer.

Did you know?

Consumers should also not forget that fuel economy is dependent on proper air pressure. Monitoring the air pressure of your tires regularly, and maintaining proper inflation as indicated by your vehicle owner's manual, is the best way to ensure you are achieving maximum fuel economy. It also increases the lifetime of your tires and is a vital part of maintaining the safety of your vehicle.
