A tire can be properly repaired if the puncture has occurred within the puncture repair area of the tire. If the puncture has occurred in the sidewall or the shoulder of the tire, then it cannot be repaired, and a new tire will be needed.

However, if our service technicians investigate your tire concern and find that the puncture is not more than ¼ of an inch in diameter, and there are not multiple punctures directly across from each other, then it's highly likely we'll be able to provide tire repair.

The tire will be removed from the rim for inspection with a thorough look at the inside and outside of the tire. While it may look like a simple fix from the outside, this will give us a full picture of what to expect from the repair. Once it's determined we can take the next steps, we'll work to repair the tire and have you back on the road as soon as possible.

Tire Service at Maguire

We want to be sure your tires are cared for. The best thing to do is stay up to date with all of your regular maintenance. For starters, a tire rotation should be performed every 5,000 miles or so. We'll take the tires off the wheels, inspect them, then place them back on the wheel in a different location as laid out by your manufacturer. This ensures even wear and tear.

Want to make sure your tires are still road-ready? You can perform the penny test, and it can be done at home. Use Abraham Lincoln's head as a guide. Put it headfirst into a few tire grooves, and if you see Lincoln's head, then that means the tire needs to be replaced. Our service professionals will be happy to install the new tire.
