Peace of mind. That’s one of the nice extras you'll get at Levin Tire.
If you ever get a flat tire, and it can be properly repaired, we’ll fix it for FREE - whether you bought the tire from us or not. And, you don’t need to worry about making an appointment. Just stop by any of our Northwest Indiana locations and we’ll get you back on the road as fast as possible.
Even if you notice a slow leak in your tire, bring it in and we'll be happy to inspect the tire. This is a sign of tire damage which could potentially lead to a blowout.
Which Types of Tire Damage Can be Repaired?
Tires can be safely repaired from puncture damage (from nails, screws, metal fragments, etc.) when:
1) The hole is ¼ inch in diameter or less
2) The hole is straight through the tread, not jagged or at an extreme angle.
3) The hole is between the “tread shoulders.”
Certain types of tire damage cannot be reliably repaired, including exposed belts and most types of sidewall damage. Since improper tire repair can lead to dangerous blowouts, we can’t - in good conscience - attempt risky repairs. In those cases, the tire will need to be replaced.
Free flat repair service is limited to puncture damage only on most cars and light trucks. Rim leaks are excluded.
Proper Tire Repair
To do a proper repair, the damaged tire must be removed from the vehicle, broken down, and fixed from the inside. For puncture damage, that means applying both a patch and a plug. The plug prevents loss of air pressure and moisture from entering the hole, while the patch supports the plug.
