Adams Autoworx in Castro Valley offers not only comprehensive auto maintenance services and repairs, but we also offer new tires, and tire repair.
Sadly, with the sorry state of the Bay Area roads, and all kinds of objects on the roads and streets, tire repair is a task we seem to undertake almost every day.
Not all tire damage can be repaired – there are two conditions that would stop us from repairing the tire - damage to the side wall or when the inner liner is damaged. If your tires suffered either of the two, we would offer you a replacement tire, because repairing a tire in either of these two conditions would make them unsafe.
In other cases, we can perform tire repair, though it is a multi-stage process:
First we inspect the tire on the outside looking for tread wear (if the tread is too worn, the tire needs to be replaced), tire rot, any obvious signs of other damage. Next we dismount the tire, look for damage to the inner liner and side wall. Once the tire passes that inspection, we find the source of the leak, remove it (nail, etc.), clean and buff out inner lining cords, then patch up the hole and seal it with liquidized rubber. We then mount the tire on the wheel, check it, and finally mount the wheel back on your vehicle.
Typically, the entire process will take about 30 minutes. You are welcome to wait in our comfortable waiting room while our technicians repair the tire.
So if your vehicle needs tire repair, call Adams Autoworx in Castro Valley – the home of Quality, Value, Service.
