Whether you discover your flat tire as you’re getting ready to leave for work or while you’re driving the road, you need to get it fixed as soon as possible. Before you bring your vehicle into our Chrysler service center to be repaired, here are some helpful tips on how to properly handle a flat tire.

Pull Over and Inspect It

If your tire goes flat while you’re driving, pull over so you stay out of the way of traffic. Then, inspect the tire both by sight and by touching the rubber to locate the leak source. You may find a nail or another sharp object that needs to be removed before driving again. Use your roadside emergency kit to avoid a collision while you wait.

Change the Tire

Never drive on a flat tire. If you do, you risk damaging your wheels and paying for more than a simple tire replacement.

Put your spare on and bring your flat to our Chrysler service and car parts center to get it patched. Don’t try to fix it yourself—that process is better left to professionals to prevent further tire damage.
