Tire repair, nowadays, does not need to be done by the motorists themselves. There are a lot of tire repair shops in every locale you would be driving to.But there are times that you may pass through a remote area that does not have any repair establishments nor any residents to help during a flat tire occurrence.
Well, simple tire problems like a nail hole in the tire tread can be repaired by the motorists themselves if they are in the above situation. They only need to have a pair of pliers to remove the nail that punched the tire tread, a jack to lift the vehicle up, a wrench to remove the tire, a small tire pump, and CAREWAY tire repair kit (an Plugger, an reamer, and a few strands of plug tire seal strings)
①Park the car in a flat surface on the road shoulder, then make sure that the engine is shut off and parking brakes are engaged before lifting up the side where the flat tire is with a jack.Make sure the car won’t move.
②Remove the flat tire by loosening the lug nuts with the tire wrench and try to remove the nail from it using your pliers. Get the rasp tool in the tire repair kit and scrape the nail hole to widen and remove some obstructions.
③Squirt some rubber cement into the hole before inserting a repair string/plug strip with the insert tool. Insert the strip all the way to the hole and pull out the insert tool.( PS:There might be a residual string protruding from the surface e of the tire tread that must be cut by a sharp blade. The plug strip must be flushed with the tire tread surface. This will prevent possible removal of the strip when driving). Then, inflat with your handy motorized pump of even a foot operated inflator.
④Install the tire, lower your car, remove the jack and the wheel blocks, then leave the area with good tires and a smooth drive.
It is an advantage to have CAREWAY tubeless tire repair kit and a handy tire pump with your jack and tire wrench whenever you drive out especially in remote places. Be prepared for this kind of situations.
