After a flat happens to your Herndon, VA auto, a quick tire repair gets you on the road with only a minimal cost and an equally small amount of time. Wiygul Automotive Clinic technicians can repair most types of flats help you save hundreds of dollars in unneeded tire replacements.
The cause for a flat tire often drops right in front of us while driving. It might be debris from an open bed truck, loose gravel from a grader, or another road hazard we deal with every week, including the potholes that seem to appear out of a perfectly good road after even a minor storm.
We approach each tire repair as a permanent fix to a problem. It is why we never recommend the foam chemical fix-a-flat cans available in home-and-auto stores and other retail outlets. These cans are a temporary solution that only last a short time, leaks around the edges, and renders the tire unusable for a permanent solution. Depending on where the damage happened and the size of it, Wiygul Automotive charges $20-$30 for each repair. That makes each fix-a-flat barely any cheaper than a professional fix.
It is not always road debris or a pothole that tears up a tire. Uneven wear can cause tire tread that otherwise looks good from the outside to split at almost any point. That is normal since each wheel wears differently depending on its position. Rotating your tires from front-to-back and side-to-side reduces this uneven wear, which also reduces the chance of a flat tire.
Wiygul Automotive recommends bringing in your Herndon, VA auto to one of our Clinics after every 5000 to 8000 miles of driving. The cost for tire rotation is only $20 per vehicle, and our technicians can accomplish one at any of our Clinics in Virginia.
If one or more of your tires have already begun to wear down past a safe point, the only way left to prevent a blowout and the need for a tire repair is to replace them on your Herndon, VA auto. We keep in stock every major tire manufacturer to support all automotive brands, foreign and domestic. If you already purchased replacement tires, we can install them. Our only requirements are that they fit your wheels properly and meet the Department of Transportation safety regulations.
Wiygul Automotive Clinics charge $20 per wheel to mount and balance new tires, regardless if you buy them from another retailer or us. Technicians can also perform a complete alignment of all four wheels for only $99.99. We encourage customers, whenever possible, to purchase four new tires at the same time. Replacing them as a set not only makes alignment and balancing easier, it also helps to maintain even tread wear once they touch the road.
