Any tire, whether it be old or new, can go flat if it is punctured or leaks air. Some of the most common causes of flat tires include leaky valve stems, bad leaks between the tire and the wheel, wheel air leaks or punctures in the tire caused by driving over sharp objects.
In the event that a tire on your vehicle goes flat while driving, you should slow down and pull over to the side of the road as soon as it is possible and safe to do so. Remember to turn on your hazard flashers so other drivers will see you, and then make sure to call Bobby & Steve’s Auto World after all precautions are taken. It is important to pull over immediately because while some flat tires are able to be repaired, continuing to drive on a flat tire will quickly ruin your tire. Driving even a short distance might be enough to cut or destroy the tire so it is best to call Bobby & Steve’s Auto World as soon as possible.
