If you have a flat tire, we’ll inspect it and let you know if it can be safely repaired or if you need a new tire. Repairing a tire is usually possible if the puncture is ¼ inch or less in diameter and it’s in the tire tread or, if there are several punctures, they should be at least 16 inches apart.
Punctures in the sidewall or shoulder of the tire or multiple punctures close together almost certainly require a new tire. Large cuts or separation of the tread also means it’s too dangerous to fix. Ask your tire specialist for advice on picking out a new tire.
Tire Shop FAQs
How Can I Protect My Tires From Unnecessary Wear?
To make sure you get the most from your investment in your tires, keep up with regular care and maintenance. Our Arlington tire shop pros recommend these tasks:
- Rotate your tires regularly. Each tire will have a different wear pattern, so it’s important to move them to new positions on your car or truck to prevent uneven wear.
- Keep your tires properly inflated. Check the pressure once a month to prevent the instability in handling that can result when tires are underinflated.
- Have your wheels aligned. Pulling to one side or noticeable vibrations may be due to misaligned wheels.
Each of these services can be done during a regular maintenance check at our tire shop in Arlington TX. Make an appointment now.

Can A Flat Or Punctured Tire Be Repaired Or Does It Need To Be Replaced?
If a tire won’t hold air or is damaged in some way, there may be more damage that can only be determined by inspecting the tire inside and out.
If your tire has a small puncture in the tread area (less than one quarter of an inch in diameter), it can generally be repaired safely. If the hole is in the sidewall or shoulder of the tire, tire experts recommend a replacement instead of a repair. Pure ASE-certified technicians can advise you on whether your tire can be safely repaired.
Can I Use A DIY Flat Repair Kit?
In simple instances of small punctures, using a repair kit will probably do the job. Keep in mind, though, that the goal is to create an airtight seal on the inner liner by completely filling the hole. Driver’s Edge in Arlington offers free flat tire repair (for most cars) for these small punctures, so let our tire pros take care of your tire.
Is Tire Balancing the Same Thing As An Alignment?
Do All My Tires Have To Match?
It’s ideal but not always possible. If you can only buy two, try to buy the other two as soon as possible. Having matched tires is important for how your car or truck handles, which is a safety factor. Ask our Arlington tire technicians for their recommendation.
