Tire Repair and Valves
Whether it’s slowly leaking air or your dashboard tire pressure light has come on, bring your vehicle into Fisher's to have a Fisher's technician take a look at it. It might just be a faulty tire valve stem that needs replacing, or perhaps your tire needs a simple repair; either way, driving on an underinflated tire can damage it beyond repair and lead to a loss in handling and fuel economy. Driving on a completely flat tire can cause wheel damage, which can cost you more in the long run, so mount the spare or get roadside assistance. It’s Not Just a Repair. It’s Complete Service.
Fisher's Tire & Service Technicians are Experienced with Tire Repair.
First, they determine whether the tire is repairable, inspecting for wear, potential structural damage to the tire and previous repairs. Once repaired, the tire is completely sealed according to tire industry standards. After the tire is repaired, we will inflate the tire to your vehicle manufacturer’s recommendations, which can also be found on the driver’s side doorjamb. They we balance the wheel and tire to distribute weight evenly on the wheel for a smoother ride and then mount the tire back onto your vehicle.

Here are some simple ways to catch tire problems before they become costly or dangerous.
Take a walk around your car in good light and look at each tire. Check for uneven wear, which can be caused by:
- Too much or too little air pressure
- Problems with alignment or balancing
- Problems with steering or suspension
If you notice uneven wear, you may need to have your tires rotated.
Next, check for any of the problems below. These could mean you need new tires — soon. These problems have the potential to
cause a blowout, causing a loss of control that can be very dangerous.
- Cracking or bulging treads or sidewalls that may mean there is wear or weakness
- Anything that's poking into the tire (nails, screws, glass)
- Tread pulling away from the body of the tire
- Worn treads. Stick a Lincoln penny in the tread, top first. If the tread doesn't touch Lincoln's head, your tires are worn.
If you find any of these problems, pull into any of our 2 convenient locations, & we'll check and adjust your air pressure and do a visual tire check, for free.
In Case of a Flat Tire
- Stop As Soon As Possible. Driving on your flat can destroy the tire and damage your wheels.
- Flat on Flat. Try to stop on even, flat pavement if you can.
- Loosen the Lug Nuts. The first crank is the toughest; do it before you jack up the vehicle.
- Jack it Up. Place your jack under the vehicle as instructed in your vehicle's owner's manual, being sure not to wedge it
- against fiberglass trim or flimsy material.
- Get Braces. If you parked on uneven ground, place a wedge behind the tires you're not changing and level the jack with
- your bracing material before jacking up the vehicle.
- Remove the Lugs.
- Remove the Flat Tire.
- Mount the Spare Tire.
- Replace the Lugs. Try to tighten each lug equally to keep your spare evenly mounted.
- Lower the Jack.
- One More Twist. With the vehicle on solid ground, the spare may have shifted. Give each lug one more twist to be sure.
- Drive Away — SLOWLY. Spare tires often have speed and usage limits listed on the sidewall. Follow these guidelines and
- contact us as soon as possible.
