How do I know I need my tire repaired or replaced?

  • Punctures, cracking, or cuts
  • Uneven tread wear
  • Worn-down tread wear indicator bars
  • Bulges or blisters—these signal potential weak spots
  • Stones or other debris embedded in the tread

Wondering if your tread’s okay? Ask Honest Abe.

Insert a penny into your tire’s grooves with Lincoln's head facing in. If you can still see the top of Abe's head, your tread is too worn, and your tire should be replaced. Learn more about the penny test today.


What is the Tire Repair Service?

Our service begins with a careful internal and external inspection of your tire by one of our experts to determine the cause and extent of any damage. This allows us to determine if your tire can be repaired, or will need to be replaced.

If your flat tire, run-flat tire, or underinflated tire is fixable, we’ll repair it in accordance with the U.S. Tire Manufacturers Association (USTMA) guidelines by properly plugging or patching any punctures from the inside.

If your tire can’t be repaired, we’ll let you know that it's time to buy a new tire. Should you choose to purchase with Just Tires, we'll help you find a quality new one suited to your needs. We’ll also rebalance your tires, and if necessary, reactivate your tire pressure monitoring system.

Why is the service recommended?

To begin our Tire Repair service, well inspect the tire to help determine the cause of pressure loss and whether the tire can be repaired. If tire repair is possible, we'll use a tire repair plug/patch to restore the tire in accordance with strict industry standards. Then, we'll rebalance the tire and rim assembly and reset your vehicle's tire pressure monitoring system as necessary (additional parts such as TPMS sensors or kits may be necessary on some vehicles and may require additional parts and/or labor charges). This service typically takes about an hour.

How does our service help?

Even if you simply notice recurring pressure loss and don't need to fix a flat tire, a tire repair service is still important for the life and performance of your tires. Not only does it aid in proper tread wear and help extend the service life of your tire, but it also helps ensure that your tires brake and handle safely and effectively.

Unfortunately, not all damaged tires can be repaired, but you can inspect your tires at home and check their air pressure monthly to help ensure that they're in good condition. If you notice a tire has deflated or been punctured, it's important to have it inspected and repaired as soon as possible. 

When should I have my tire inspected?

Stay ready for anything by inspecting your tires at least once a month for signs of damage. If any are present, or if you are experiencing continuous pressure loss, come see us so we can dismount the tire in question to inspect it and determine if a repair can be made.

FAQS: Ask a mechanic

If you get a flat tire, you can try to replace it with a spare tire on your own, but we recommend you let the auto professionals at Just Tires perform this service. Call our 24-hour towing service at 1-877-GYR4TOW to bring your vehicle to the nearest Just Tires.
If you experience a flat tire while driving, you should first pull your car over to a safe area. Then call our 24-hour towing service at 1-877-GYR4TOW to bring your vehicle to the nearest Just Tires.
We do not recommend driving on a flat tire, unless you have EMT or run flat tires. Continuing to drive on a normal flat tire could cause damage to the rim, while also providing less traction and introducing a potentially hazardous situation.
Run flat tires are tires that allow you to continue driving on a flat tire, for a longer period of time than a non-run flat tire. Note that run flat tires have specific speed and distance limitations, depending on the manufacturer specifications. Additionally, they provide optimal convenience and storage space in your vehicle, since you don’t have to carry a spare.
Run flat tires can be purchased from most tire manufacturers, including Just Tires. Keep in mind that not all vehicles can be fitted with run flat tires, so visit your local Just Tires location, and our experts will help you determine which tires fit your vehicle.
Spare tires can be purchased from most tire manufacturers, including Just Tires. You may purchase spare tires for your vehicle at your local Just Tires location.

*Not all tires can be repaired. Specific repair limits should be based on recommendations or repair policy of the tire manufacturer and/or type of tire service (e.g. service description, run-flat technology, commercial service applications, etc.)
