what is wrong with tire --is it flat -off rim -if solid tire damaged /cracked --if flat and tube will need to break down tire to either replace tube or patch it --if tubeless either plug it or depending what caused flat replace tire --if solid tire notify manufacturer for replacement or ask for local parts distributor and their is always the internet sites --for parts
Replacement tube may be more beneficial even though the fix/patch may be cheaper. If you live in an area that have varying climate, the patch along with the repaired tube can expand and contract and may cause small leak if not repaired properly.
Otherwise I would get the right size tube, most jogging strollers are either 12" or 16" tube inside and can be bought from your local bicycle store. With that, you'll need bicycle tire levers which can also be bought at the bike shop. Just about any type of tire levers will do. Of course I'm sure your bike shop can do this for you to possibly for free with a purchase of replacement tube!
1. You need to make sure the tube doesnt have more than one piercings [inflate the tube and, using a bucket of clear water, immerse it and observe any air outlets. if you have a pen or marker, mark them]
2. Make sure the valve of the tube really is tight enough. If it isnt, use a valve spanner to tighten it, but make sure you dont do it too hard, or else it will snap.
3. You'll need to check the tyre for any sharp objects that could have got stuck in it and are causing new punctures
4. You need to make sure that both the tube and patch are course enough to be glued to each other when you apply the contact adhesive to them.
5. When you apply the adhesive, depending on the brand, you wont need to 'immediately stick the two surfaces together, let a bit of fresh air dry them a bit, [this would imply waiting for minute or 2] then patch things up
you need to find somebody to put a patch on it, I patched mine after having a screw through it and I drove it for another 3,000 miles with no issues. A lot of people say you can't patch them but its bs and I personally did it.
to find the hole, try to fill the tire with air, and put it on a shallow water were it's enough for you to see the bumbles that come out from the tire.
to repair a flat tire, take out the interior of tire and if you happen to see the location of the hole try to find an unused rubber and cover the hole with that rubber and glue it with a quick drying glue... (this is a non-professional work)
Any bike shop will have patch equipment. You need to deflate the tire and remove it from the wheel. See if there is a tube inside the tire. If so, the fix is easy: either purchase a new tube for the tire, or get a patch. Use modelling glue on the patch then press it continually on the hole on the tire for about five minutes until it is dry. Afterwards, re-insert the tube into the tire, reattach the tire to the rim and pump it back up
