At Wiygul Automotive, we understand that the road is not always friendly to you and your automobile. Construction zones in Alexandria never seem to go away completely, and potholes appear almost overnight, especially when the weather begins to change as it does in the Fall.
When it happens, don’t throw that old tire in the nearest ditch or turn it into a backyard swing. In cases where the problem is due to a simple, clean puncture, we can take care of it for you. Wiygul Automotive technicians at our Alexandria, VA Clinic can quickly repair your flat tire and get you back out on the road.
Depending on the area of the damage, we charge only $20 to a maximum of $30 per tire at every one of our area Clinics. That may seem expensive compared to the $9 fix-a-flat cans of sealant, but once that chemical enters the tire, it is impossible to apply a long-term repair. Our experts can repair almost any damage unless the tread has physically separated from the rest of the tire.
Prevention is always better than repairing a flat tire, even at our Alexandria, VA Clinic. This is especially true when it means being stuck on the side of the road with a flat tire, no spare, and whatever daily emergency is making your life more difficult by the minute. To get the last possible mile from them, every Wiygul Automotive Clinic offers the following services:
Tire Rotation – After every 5000 – 8000 miles, we advise rotating your tires from front-to-back and side-to-side. It is a very effective method to keep tread wear even.
Tire Balancing – No tire or wheel is perfectly formed, so every new tire needs proper balancing to make certain it works with the others from the moment it touches the road.
Tire Alignment – This service is exactly as it reads. Our technicians align each tire, so they all function in the same direction. We usually perform this in conjunction with Tire Balancing so that all four tires work together just like the cylinders in an engine.
For Wiygul Automotive, this all goes back to the very beginning when James Wiygul started 60 years ago. He quickly realized how important maintenance was to his customers and how something as simple as a flat tire can have a major impact on one of his neighbors when it happens at the worst possible time.
When his son, Oscar and his wife Sue opened the first Wiygul Clinic in Alexandria, VA, the lessons learned from a simple flat tire repair stayed foremost in their minds. It paid off, and in the years following, another seven shops have opened to support our neighbors here in Virginia and Maryland.
