What are the causes of a flat tire?

There are several different causes of a flat tire. One of the most common reasons is a puncture in the tire. This may be due to a nail, a screw, or any other sharp object. If the object is large enough, it can cause the tire to go flat instantly.

Another common reason for a flat tire is a slow leak. This can be caused by a small puncture or a crack in the wheel. A slow leak can also be caused by improper tire inflation. If your tires are not properly inflated, they will slowly lose air over time.

If you have a flat tire there are a few things you can do to try to fix it. If the object that caused the flat is still in the tire, remove it and replace the tire, either using the spare or have it changed at a tire repair shop.

​If the flat tire is due to a slow leak, you may be able to fix it by patching the tire or changing the tire. If you're not sure how to fix a flat tire, or if the flat tire is due to a serious problem, such as a blowout, call Kensington Towing. We'll be happy to help you.

Benefits of on-site repair?

There are several benefits of on-site flat tire repair. First, it's much more convenient than taking your car to a mechanic. You don't have to worry about any vehicle logistics issues, much less drive your car to a mechanic.

That's where we come in. Kensington Towing can tow your car to any repair shop in the area.

Second, repairing that flat tire on the spot is far more time saving than swapping it out for the spare since it saves you the hassle of having to bring your original tire to a tire repair shop to get it fixed.

​What's more, it also saves you the risk of having to drive you car on the spare tire in the meantime, which is much smaller and is only suitable for short distances as a temporary measure.
