I just got a flat on my new Quick 36" How do I fix it? Do I need a whole new tire?
If its just a puncture you could get a plug kit from a gas station or your dealer. If its off the rim (or if you don't want to plug), take it to a gas station and those guys will usually help you out.
I find gas stations are usually cheaper and FASTER than going to the dealer.
It's actually off the rim. I think I'll just take it up to the tire shop.
Why is it off the rim? That being the case just put a tube in her.
while you are at it, slime your tires so you don't have to worry about flats anymore
I work in a small engine shop and the reason for this is most shops are not set up to do tires like a tire shop is. We have a tire shop about 5 minutes from the shop and we some times take tires down there instead of mess with them ourselves. I hate doing tires, it would not bother me if I never had to fix another one as long as I lived.
I had a small sidewall puncture 2 weeks ago, the tire was junk. I had 2 spare used tires and took one to the tire dealer in town. It did have a plug in it from something I ran over previously. They patched the hole, put a tube in and I was in and out in 15 minutes for sixteen bucks. The gas station cannot do that for me.
Tire slime works great i had two pest tires always leaking. Put slime in them no problems now.
Can you press down on the tire as to just get the the rim of the tire to come in contact with the rim itself and pump air into it at the same time? The air will pop the tire back on the rim. If this does not work and you get it fixed, slime all tires whether flat or not to aid in the prevention of future flats.
I don't put tubes in my tires if I can help it. The next time you have a flat, you have to take the tube out and patch it. I keep a plug kit in the truck. Get it at Wal-Mart for about $5-6.
