The sidewall of a tire is very thin and for safety reasons should not be repaired. The tread part is thick and contains the steel belt. If you put a plug in the tread section, the steel belt will hold the plyg in place. Once the sidewall is damaged, change the tire.

Either someone is letting the air out of your tire or it has a leak. Obviously the shops you have taken it to are incompetent if they can't find a leak. A good shop will submerge the tire and rim in a vat of water and look for air bubbles. If you have alloy rims, occasionally the rim may have "porosity" where the air bleeds out thru the center of the rim between the tire beads. A good rim shop will have sealant that is sprayed or brushed on the rim center to seal it.

Tip

Tire installation


Take dated picture of your wheels while at the shop before getting tires and make them write any damage on their estimate before they install the tires as with the price of new rims,most places cant install tires without ruing the face of the rims.I went through this with Pep Boys(They did buy new rims,but they were aftermarket and not too good.I am going through this with sears in Moorestown New Jersey.I caught them double dipping the install charges and they had to refund my money.I am fighting with their insurance company as mine had to pay $600. for aftermarket rims.So take pictures and make them inspect and put inwriting and prior damage.if they wont then go somewhere else.This will protet both the shop and you.trust me on this as these guys are not honest.100% of the time thewill say it was there.Getit in writing.It was an expensive lesson for me.

Front right tire is making a noise when it is moving it shakes need help


More than likely a broken belt in the tire, or a bent rim. switch the front tires around, if the problem moves to the left, you will know for sure it's the wheel and not the truck. Any tire repair shop can tell you if it's the tire or rim. Stock rims are cheaper to replace from junkyard than they are to have repaired.

I have a 1992 Chevy Lumina Van with Alum. rims that leaks air out of the tires. Is there a fix for that or do i need to buy steel rims? Any info. would be appreciated. Thanks.


What you have is a very common and annoying problem with aluminum wheels. There are 3 things you can do. Take it to a tire shop and have them put rubber sealant around the bead, put fix a flat in each tire, or like you said, buy steel wheels.

My local tire store put semi deep scratches in each spoke (5) and on the lip of the rim (360d)of my factory alloy wheels. i'm worried about structural integrity. should i be ?


Nope, the factory rims are more durable then the after market rims. that is why you can have factory rims repaired and refinished a to the after market rims you can't. If you do a search around your area for rim repair, the average price is $100.00 per rim and see if the tire repair shop would fit the bill for the repair or may be half the price. When replacing the the tire from any aluminum rims, there suppose to use the proper tire removal tool for aluminum rims. The machine has a nylon end so it wouldn't scratch or damage the rim in any way if done right by a trained technician. The finish on my Cobalt SS rims are still blemish free from tire changes from the place i go since tires are all they do.

Thank you for using Fixy and i would have the tire shop fit the bill. That's what shop insurance are for.

I recommend taking your vehicle to a shop (any shop) that use a Hunter tire balancer. These machines can detect all variables that affect ride quality by not only spinning the rim, but it uses a roller to inspect the tire itself for its "road force". They can also measure the rim while on the machine for run-out to detect for a bent rim. There can be times when a tire can be mounted to the wheel in a postion that promotes more vibration, but the hunter machines can check and show the correct location to minimize the feel to the driver. Here is a picture of the kind of balancer you want your vehicle serviced at. Please let me know how things work out.7e27679.jpg

you will need new rims but if they do it correctly (i.e. change the aspect ratio of the tire to counter act the rim size increase) this will not effect the speedometer.
