Tire Repairs

Q: Do you recommend using liquid tire sprays to fix a leaking tire?

A: I would only recommended using liquid tire sprays in emergency situations. The liquid can corrode the inside of the rim and throw the tire off balance. A better fix is to have the tire plugged or patched. A technician can plug a tire without removing it from the rim. However, when a tire is patched it needs to be removed from the rim. Always have the tire and wheel assembly rebalanced if the tire was taken off the rim during the repair.
