Roadside Assistance Pros Offer Tips for Dealing With a Flat Tire, Monument, Colorado

Roadside emergencies such as a flat tire can happen anytime, and when they do, you can either replace it with a spare tire or call a towing company like Monument Towing for help. They have been offering the best tow truck service in Palmer Lake, CO, and its surrounding areas for over 28 years.

Their roadside assistance specialists share some tips in dealing with a flat tire:

  • Bring the Necessary Equipment All the Time: Tire problems can easily be solved with the right equipment. Necessary tools including a floor jack, lug wrench, inflating pump, and, of course, a spare tire should always be inside your car. With basic knowledge, these should be enough to get you back on the road.

  • Be Sure Hand Brakes Are Applied: The last thing that you’d want to happen while replacing a flat tire is to have your vehicle fall off the jack when the damaged tire has already been removed. Be sure to apply the hand brakes before attempting to remove the tire and attach the spare. This helps prevent accidents from happening and spares you from potentially bigger problems.

  • Roadside AssistanceTire Puncture Sealant Helps: If you are in a hurry and don’t have the time to replace the punctured tire with the spare one, you can use a puncture sealant. This will help stop air from leaking until you have the time to replace the tire and have it repaired for continued use.

  • Call for a Tow Truck Service: If the above-mentioned preventive steps and quick solutions don’t work, that’s the time you call for towing service. You can also choose to make this your first step, to save time and avoid wasting energy in potentially fruitless efforts.

It’s possible to solve a flat tire problem by yourself, but if you lack knowledge in how it’s done, vehicle towing is your next option. Call Monument Towing at (719) 481-2511 for your roadside assistance needs. You may also visit their website to learn more about their services.
