INTRODUCTION Repairing your tire isnt hard and can simply be done by you in under an hour. If you dont want to do your own tire repair however you can always take your tire to a garage and get it repaired by a garage motor mechanic. If however you choose to get it fixed by a garage then it will take longer to get your tire repaired. This is because you will have to get your car towed. This will mean that your car might not be ready for a few days. But it will depend on how busy your local garage is. It will also depend upon whether or not they have a lot of cars to see which will factor in how long it will take for your repair.

SHOULD YOU GET YOUR TIRE REPAIR DONE IN A GARAGE OR DO IT YOURSELF You might be wondering whether or not you should get your tire repair done in a garage or do it yourself. If you are looking to save money then doing it yourself can help save you money. If you are going to repair your own tires then you will need two things to help you with this. The first thing that you need to help with your tire repair if you are doing it alone is getting a tire repair kit. A tire repair kit wont cost you that much. For example it can be as cheap as 15 if you are buying your tire repair kit off of eBay. You can easily purchase tire repair kits off of eBay or Amazon. At a maximum you will pay just over 55 for a tire repair kit. So they arent too costly And you can use it several times for several repairs. This means that it works out cheaper than taking your vehicle to a garage to get repaired.

If you take your vehicle to a garage to get a tire repaired then that can work out about roughly the same price as a home kit. However keep in mind that when you take it to the garage you will only be getting one repair. Whereas with a home tire repair kit you will get several repairs out of it. Then you have to think about who is doing your repair. When you take your tire to a garage to get a repair the cost will cover a motor mechanic repairing your tire for you. However if you buy a home kit then either you will have to do it or you will have to get a friend or family member to do it.

THERE ARE BENEFITS WITH EACH METHOD OF REPAIR. IF YOU ARE GOING TO REPAIR THAT TIRE BY YOURSELF HERE ARE A FEW TIPS: Have A Look At The Tire First have a look at the tire. Try and see the damage done to your tire and figure out what has happened. Find Your Puncture Next find the puncture on your tire. To repair your tire you will have to locate where the puncture is so you can locate it. Work On Repairing The Puncture Finally work on repairing the puncture. Firstly you will need to take the punctured tire off of the car so that you can fix the puncture. With the rasp in your toolkit clean the puncture out. Put your plug through the puncture do this with the insertion tool in your toolkit. Cut away any excess and then pump your tire full of air. Next put some soap mixture onto the plug/puncture and smooth it out. Wait until it is dry and then put the wheel back on your car. Its as simple as that

BERNARD MT CONDENSED Most car drivers will at some point have used car tires. These used car tires come off of your car because they are no longer needed for your car. This could be because they have a puncture on the wheel that is not repairable. Or it could be because the tires are too old rusty and not suitable for you or anyone else to use any more. The question is how do you get rid of these tires Used tires are not something that you can just throw out with the normal rubbish. Its unlikely that your local council will pick up tires that are put out with the normal rubbish collection. Therefore you are going to need to discharge your used tires in a different way. There are three main ways that you can get rid of your used tires. We will outline those ways below.

slide 8:

The first way that you can get rid of used tires is to phone up your local council and ask them for a specialized collection. Often councils will come and pick up rubbish through specialized collections. But you will need to contact your local council and organize a pick-up date and time for your used tires. This is probably be the easiest way to get rid of used tires. However it isnt the only way. There are other options that you can use. Another option for you is to take your used tires to a tire recycling company. This option is a great option for the environment. As it stops pollution and helps to recycle your used car parts. Not only will you help the environment through this option but you can also make money through this option too. Recycling companies will often pay you when you give them tires to recycle.

Finally you can take your tire to your local tire business. There are tire businesses which will take your tires for you. They will then use the tires themselves. This can be a quick and easy option for you to choose.

slide 10:

WHERE CAN I FIND USED TIRES If however if you are not looking to get rid of your tires but instead are looking for a way to buy used tires then there are options out there for you to choose. There are two main ways that you can purchase some used tires. The first option is that you can purchase them at your local tire business. These companies take in old tires that people dont want and they then sell them to other people. Or secondly you can purchase old tires at your local garage. Often garages will take in peoples old tires and then sell them to other customers. This can be a quick and effective way of buying some tires. Whichever method you choose know that you dont necessarily need to pay a lot of money for brand new tires. Instead you can get some used tires at a bargain price

WHAT IS WHEEL BALANCING Wheel balancing is all about how the wheel of a vehicle is balanced out. It means the wheel is balanced out equally rather than unevenly. If the wheel is balanced unevenly then it results in the wheel not working as it should work. Whereas if the wheel is balanced then the wheel will work correctly and the way that it is supposed to work. Therefore wheel balancing is important for your vehicle it is the difference between a vehicle working properly and a vehicle working wrongly. This should not be confused with wheel alignment. Wheel alignment is different from wheel balancing. Wheel alignment is when the wheels are aligned parallel with each other. It is to ensure that the wheels are kept in a straight line. This helps to ensure that the vehicle works properly. It is easy to confuse wheel alignment with wheel balance as they are similar. But they are two separate things – they form two different functions. Each of these functions works to ensure that your vehicle works the way that it is supposed to. And that it functions in a way that is correct.

slide 12:

HOW DO I ENSURE WHEEL BALANCING Now that you know what the difference between wheel alignment and wheel balance you will want to know how you can ensure wheel balancing. To ensure wheel balancing of your vehicle follow these tips: Equal Weight Of The Wheel Make sure there is an equal weight of the wheel. This means that your wheel should be of an equal weight in all areas. Wheel balancing is when your wheel is simply balanced. Equal Balance Of The Wheel

Next make sure that there is an equal balance of the wheel. To make sure that there is an equal balance of the wheel use some wheel weights on your wheel. This will show you whether or not your wheel is balanced. Add the weights to the rim of the tire and check whether or not there is an equal balance of the wheel while you are doing this. With the weights you can use a scale to help you check to see if the wheel is balanced or not. Adding weights to both sides of the scale when placed on the rim of the wheel will show you if the wheel is balanced or if the wheel is unbalanced. If the wheel is unbalanced then you should correct it.

slide 14:

HOW TO BALANCE OUT YOUR WHEEL If you noticed that your wheel is not balanced right then you can take your car to a mechanic and have them correct the wheel imbalanced. You will know if your wheel is unbalanced because of the car might feel a bit uneven or even a bit wobbly. If your car feels wobbly or uneven then take your car to a mechanic as you are probably experiencing a wheel imbalance. Correcting that wheel wont take long
