Unless you have those "Run-Flat" tires, the answer is "No further than it takes you to safely get out of traffic. One should NEVER run on a flat if it can be avoided, as the sidewalls of the tire can be damaged very quickly. Even with run-flat tires, you still should change it ASAP, but you have a little longer before damage sets in. Your tubeless tires, completely flat and assuming 30 MPH, will probably start showing serious damage in a block or two. Note that tire sidewall damage can not be repaired.

What is the clicking sound in my right tire on my ninety four acura vigor ?


Without looking at the tire or actually hearing whether or not the "clicking": is coming from the tire, I'd have to say that most likely your tire has taken on a hitchhiker: a screw or nail that is "clicking" when it taps the the ground with each tire rotation. Does the speed of the clicking speed up and slow down concurrently with your speed? Have you had to fill the tire lately or semi-regularly? Inspect the tire carefully tread and sidewalls and between the treads....If you do find a screw or nail, don't pull it out as it's all that's keeping you air from really coming out. If you can safely drive, take the car to your selection of tire/auto shops/mechanics, or perhaps put on the spare if you'd feel more safe. As long as the puncture isn't on the side wall or too extensive (and there's actual life in the tread still!) they should easily, quickly and CHEAPLY be able to plug the puncture for you and have you back on the road again in no time!

Good luck!

What does run flat indicator mean


it means that your tire pressuse is low in one of the wheels or that u have a puncture ,,,, run flats hold up when u have a puncture so wheels will look ok ,,, check them all for pressure ,,, the low one is the problem due to either a puncture usually ,,,, if not you have a faulty sensor

Do you need to balance a wheel after a puncture


if the tire was not removed to repair the puncture(tire plug) then no,if the tire was removed to repair with an internal patch and the tire was not marked as to its location on the rim and the existing wheel weights not marked then i would say it should be rebalanced.if the tire location and wheel weights were marked then you should be okay and not require re balancing.

Purchased focus sport 2006 model no service manual. Mileage 43,000 kms. Need to know service intervals either time/mileage perhaps a copy of the service schedule will suffice.


These maintenance intervals come from the maintenance interval calculator
at www.autozone.com, using a starting point of 25,800 miles (43000 km), and
assuming 1000 miles (1666 km) driven per month, and "severe driving conditions," which
are actually normal usage characteristics, such as frequent short trips, urban driving, waiting in traffic, driving in hot weather, trips under 16 km in cold weather, etc.

Hi, my tyre pressure sensor came on indicating a puncture? I have felt the tyres over a 3 hr period, but no tyres are going soft. Could it be the sensor?


Try to inflate each tire to the same pressure and run it. If the light comes on after clearing it, then it could be a bad wheel speed sensor circuit.

But, be warned, that the car will sense even slight pressure irregularities over several miles based on wheel speed sensor data.

I have new Accent Excutive car, i just notiec that my car tyer type is Bridgestone S322 . My Question is its a Tube less tyre ? My car has all company fited tryes one of them show 175/170 R 13-...


putting a tube inside a tubeless tyre is a cheap way of fixing a puncture,BUT DO NOT EXCEED 75MPH,as, if the tube gets punctured,you could lose total control of the car......If you get a puncture with A TUBELESS TYRE YOU SHOULD ALWAYS replace it (how much is your life worth)Tyres have written on the wall wether they are tubeless or not.DO NOT MIX THEM,lastly NO MANUFACTURER fits tyres with tubes for road use.

mcdevito75 here, Your Tire Mechanic could be right regarding the chrome wheels leaking a bit of air, however, you have radial tires, either all season or steel belted, and once punctured radial tires are very hard to seal, very hard. I would advise a new tire rather than all 4 new chrome rims.

I need to know when the wheels need to be alligned. Preferably in KM


the rule is it should be done anytime the tires show usual wear, there is no mileage/kilometer recommendation by the manufacturer.

That is absolutely and totally wrong. They want your money. Go to another tire place and have them replace only the tire that is bad. If your other 3 tires are bald or mis-sized, replace them also but it will not affect the tranny.
