Often, the reason for a flat tire drops right in front of your auto. It can be debris from a recycling truck, gravel from a grading vehicle, or other road hazards we face on a weekly basis. Then, there are the potholes that seem to grow overnight after a medium-strength storm.
When a flat happens to your Burke, VA vehicle, a quick tire repair gets you back on the road after a small loss of time and with only minimal cost to your monthly budget. Technicians with Wiygul Automotive Clinics train to repair many types of tire damage and can help you save hundreds of dollars in unneeded tire purchases.
Every tire repair needs to be done as a permanent fix to a problem. The fix-a-flat foam chemicals available in retail outlets, and many home-and-auto stores are a temporary solution that lasts a very short time and renders the tire unusable for a permanent repair.
Depending on the size of the damage and where on the tire it happened, Wiygul Automotive charges only $20-$30 per tire for repair. That makes the can of fix-a-flat barely cheaper than a professional repair which does not leak at the edges or make a mess in the driveway or parking lot.
It is not always a pothole or foreign object that damages a tire. Uneven tread wear can cause a tire that otherwise looks good to blow out while running errands or traveling to work. Even very minor differences with each wheel can cause tires to wear out unevenly. Rotating tires across these points from front-to-back and side-to-side reduces uneven tread wear and extends the life of each tire.
Our recommendation to avoid tire repair or replacement is that you bring in your Burke, VA auto after every 5000 to 8000 miles of driving for rotation. The cost is only $20 per vehicle, and our technicians can accomplish the task at any of our Virginia Clinics.
Once the tires do begin to wear down, the best way to prevent a blowout and therefore the need for tire repair is to replace the tire or tires on your Burke, VA vehicle. We keep every major tire manufacturer in stock to support all automotive brands, domestic and foreign. If you have already purchased tires, we can install them on your vehicle, as long as the tires meet Department of Transportation safety regulations.
To mount and balance new tires, our Clinics charge $20 per wheel. A complete tire alignment of all four wheels is $99.99. Wiygul Automotive encourages customers, when possible, to purchase four new tires at the same time. Replacing them as a set makes alignment and balancing easier and also helps to keep the tire tread even from the moment the wheels begin turning.
