[Peninsula Towing 6678 Bertram Place Saanichton, BC V8M 1Z6, 19/04/2022] Tires are an essential component of vehicle maintenance yet are sometimes disregarded by many vehicle owners. While they may seem to be in good condition, at first sight, the fact is that they may go flat at any time of day or night.
A flat tire is almost inevitable if you drive even marginally regularly. Did you know that almost seven flat tires occur every second in the United States?
If you're a part of this statistic, you may be on the side of the road right now, looking on your phone for "I have a flat tire, what do I do?" Even if you aren't, you should familiarise yourself with what to do if anything happens! You should know when you might need a flat tire replacement in Victoria.
What to Do If you Experience a Flat Tire While Driving?
A flat tire while driving may be a frightening experience, and you will surely know when it occurs. You'll probably feel that the automobile is being dragged toward the flat tire. Additionally, you may feel as if you are unable to accelerate.
Your first move should be to pull over to the side of the road safely. If you're on the highway, pull over to the shoulder. Ascertain that you are not in danger of being struck by another motorist.
It is also critical to turn on your hazard lights if it is nightfall. If you have safety cones, use them to provide further notice to other cars.
What to Do If you Have a Flat Tire in Parking?
If you have a flat tire, but your vehicle is parked, you will find yourself in a more convenient scenario. In this situation, begin with a visual inspection of the tires.
Run your hands lightly along the tire, both front and rear. You'll be on the lookout for anything that could be stuck, such as a nail or staple. If you do not notice anything stuck, the tire might just be low on air.
If you're having difficulty changing the tire on your own at this stage, you should contact roadside assistance for flat tire replacement.
