Dismounting and inspection of the tire to determine whether it can be repaired
If You Have a Flat Tire, Driving on it is the Last Thing You Should Do
It can cause irreparable damage to the tire and wheel. Your tire can become punctured due to road debris such as nails, broken glass, or other sharp objects that can create a tiny fissure that will lead to a slow loss of air pressure.
Many times, a small puncture can be repaired without needing to replace the tire.
If you are driving and you get a flat, cautiously ease off the gas and gradually stop on the shoulder of the road. Riding on a flat tire will cause irrevocable damage to the tire.
If your tire is not flat but is low on air this situation should also be addressed.
You may have a slow leak in your tire. Driving with low pressure could cause loss of traction, poor fuel economy, reduced ride comfort, and impact safety. Driving with low pressure, especially at high speeds, could trigger a blowout, causing loss of control, which may be very harmful.
The good news?
Most leaks can be repaired if they are caught early enough and the tire is not driven on while flat.
Tire repairs start at $25 plus tax and can be done anytime, no appointment is necessary.
Tire Repair Services Will Include
Flat-tire repair as per industry standards
Proper patching from the inside of the tire if suitable for repair
Rebalancing of tire and wheel assembly
Check tire pressure and reset the tire pressure monitoring system
Why is Flat Repair Important?

Repair or Replacement?
While most punctures can be easily repaired, unfortunately, not all punctures are repairable, and a replacement tire is needed. Properly repairing a flat tire is very important. A flat tire can be repaired if the puncture is ¼ inch or smaller and if the puncture is located on the tread of a tire. It is recommended that the tire repair procedure involve a plug and a patch on the lining of the tire. A plug and a patch can add thousands of miles more to a damaged tire.
It is safer to replace your tire than to try to repair it if the puncture is on the side of the tire, the area that needs to be repaired overlaps another repair, or the damage is larger the 1/4 inch in diameter.

Look what our Customers are Saying
I had a flat tire and also a ruined wheel. I texted them, got everything sorted out and was given an accurate and fair quote immediately after a few quick and painless questions (thank you Andrew!) the boys at the front are swell guys, and I paid a low low rate for parts and labour, it was not bad at all. Nothing extra was pushed on me either and they fixed my wheels in what felt like less than 20 minutes. Go with these guys if you got tire problems or whatever else they can do for you, they’re top notch. Highly recommended.
Took some tires to here to get mounted and balanced. They had to take off old tires from rims and put new tires on to those rims and install onto my vehicle which they did for an exceptionally low price of 20$/tire…can’t beat that! It took them a little longer than they estimated but other than that I was very pleased with the service and highly recommend this place for tire service.
I’ve been visiting Tire Terminal since 2017. I highly recommend their services to friends and family. They are professional and quick to service my car. Other places you would end up waiting minimum 2 hours just for a seasonal/winter tire swap. This place gets it done in a Jiffy. Also, they offered the best winter tire/Rim set out there. As everyone knows winter tires are not cheap. This place gives you the best price for your dollar. I wish I had known this place earlier, because other tire places your pretty much wasting your time and money. Once again thank you to all of the staff, for your kind and professional can do attitude and efforts.
