A flat tire will cause loss of traction, poor fuel economy, poor comfort, impacted safety, and possible blowout. Driving with a flat tire, especially at high speeds, could trigger a blowout, causing a loss of control, which may be very harmful.
While most punctures can be easily repaired, not all punctures are repairable, and a replacement tire is needed. A flat tire can be repaired if the puncture is ¼ inch or smaller and if the puncture is located on the tread of a tire. It is recommended that the tire repair procedure involve a patch on the lining of the tire. A properly applied patch can last the life of the tire in most cases.
It is safer to replace your tire than to try to repair it if the puncture is on the side of the tire, the area that needs to be repaired overlaps another repair, or the damage is larger the 1/4 inch in diameter.
