Nothing is more dangerous than having a tire blow out as you are traveling along the highway or roadways. Tire failure can mean loss of control as the vehicle swerves both left and right, and loss of the ability to safely navigate the vehicle to a stop.
Attempting to travel on three wheels is both problematic and dangerous to attempt, and driving on a spare “doughnut” tire can only get you so far.
Whether you need a tire repaired, or a new set of tires altogether, stop by NOLA Automotive Repairs today. Our skilled team of automotive experts will ensure that your car’s tires are safe and secure so that you can resume your travels without worry or hesitation.
Every car needs a proper set of functioning tires if we ever expect to successfully go from point A to point B in our day-to-day journeys or special trips. If a vehicle sustains damage to one or more tires, how can we tell if a repair will suffice or if a total tire replacement is needed?
Damaged tires may be repaired if they fall into these specific criteria:
If your tire’s damage falls under any of these criteria listed above, then rest assured, a simple repair will be in order. If more extensive damage was sustained, however, then a total tire replacement and balancing will be needed. Visit our trusted tire shop in New Orleans to help you check your wheels for any sign of damage.
Tires become damaged for many reasons. Whether it is from rolling over a sharp object in the road, or from general wear and tear, it’s important to take care of the damage immediately.
Regardless whether the tire needs repair or not, you should also have all four tires routinely checked by a skilled, licensed auto mechanic. This is usually done at the time of your regular vehicle maintenance appointment. After all, proper, intact, and safe tires are important in getting you safely to all of your destinations.
How can you tell if your tires are damaged or worn? The trick is to listen and feel for any changes in the way the vehicle drives. Since replacing all four tires can be costly, it’s good to know when a simple, low cost, affordable repair may be needed. As with any vehicle repair, a tire that needs patching should be fixed only by a trained, competent, and trustworthy professional.
Your mechanic will remove the tire (or tires) from the vehicle and thoroughly inspect it to assess the damage. In some cases a tire patch can be employed to repair the damage and save you the expense of a brand new tire.
Patching will be done from the inside and not the outside, meaning that the tire is patched, and the hole is filled from the inside of the tire instead of from the outside. Any tire that is patched from the outside will have little chance of withstanding the wear and tear from the road and any road debris it encounters. Any tire plugs, however, are meant to be temporary until the tire is taken to be professionally repaired.
As with any part of your vehicle, it’s also important to have a properly attached set of solid, dependable tires. A proper set of tires will serve to keep your vehicle properly balanced while on the road. Worn down treads, imbalanced tires, lopsided or deflated tires will throw your car off balance and cause more damage and expense down the road. If you notice that any of your tires have any of these issues, it’s imperative to immediately seek the help of a skilled auto mechanic in order to avoid any further damage to your vehicle in the long run.
If you’re driving and you notice something off with one or all of your tires, it’s important to be able to quickly identify and assess the issues on your own so that you will be able to report the issue in detail to your auto mechanic.

Our happy customers have this to say about us:
“The best auto mechanics in NOLA… I’ve been to some mechanics before where they mis-diagnose what’s going on and turn a 2-hour project into a 2-week project. Whenever I’ve brought my cars here, they are in and out, as though it were standard procedure, which makes my husband feel much better about dropping his ‘girls’ off. True professionals & experts.” —Mary Kroll
“Only shop I trust in NOLA to take care of my cars… They’ve earned my trust this year and I’ve taken my cars here regularly as needed. I feel really satisfied with the work and effort they put into my cars — it’s evident they care about producing good results for me.” —Richard Long
“I brought my vehicle here for repair and I really felt comfortable with leaving my car here…everyone that I encountered were very friendly and they seemed pretty honest…so I left my car for repair. I spoke mainly with Stacy and she was very helpful, very informative and detailed with what I needed to get done to my car…I didn’t feel like they were trying to just screw me out of money….the issues that I went in there to get fixed…they told me that I could go without that, but needed something more serious done…and it cost less than what I was trying to get done…so I went with it and I felt that they were being truthful. One of my worries about going to auto shops sometimes, is worrying about being screwed over b/c I’m a woman and b/c I’m going into the shop by myself…but I go off of my instincts and I felt like the people at this shop were genuinely legit!!!
