If you want to do it yourself you could go get a tire patch kit from a shucks or something it comes with a screw like thing with a handle. then you get this orange gooey string thing with it usually. all you do is take of the wheel pull the nail then screw in the screw thing with handle pull it out put the gooey string on the screw thing and put it into the hole and pull out and cut off excess.

Any tire place (Les Schwab, Discount Tire, etc) will repair it for free.

Just take it in and they'll get it done in no time!

They'll repair all OEM tires for free along with the tires that they sell. Even if you have a tire that they don't normally sell you just have to tell them that you purchased your current set from another Les Schwab's used.

I used to work for America's Tire Co here in Oregon.

It's good business to fix flats for free. That's why they do it. I think they may have added a symbolic charge recently, but it gets dropped w/o asking usually anyways.

not everybody is bill gates, some people are struggling to put bread on their table and keep their subies running right =) Kirkland discount tire rules they did a good job being careful of not scratching my works. those s03's are pretty hard to get off the tires too without getting a little rough with it

Post Re: Flat Tire

As long as you go to the place that you either purchased your tires from or had them put your tires on will fix a flat for free =p
