Our technicians are highly trained using industry-approved methods to repair punctures and cuts in the tread of your tires. As long as your tire pressure is where it ought to be, you can drive around on these repaired tires.
Unfortunately, if your tires have been punctured or cut in either the sidewall or shoulder they’re most likely beyond repair and will need to be replaced. If you’ve driven on very low inflated or flat tire pressure for any period of time you might have permanently damaged the tire’s internal structure. This can lead to much larger problems. It’s important to bring your BMW or Mini Cooper in immediately so the Beyer Motor Works team can do an inspection of the damage.
All tires, even spare tires, that are 10 or more years old should be removed and replaced, even if as a precaution. Remember, when it comes to tires it’s not just about the visible damage. If you’re unsure of the age of your tire, let us take a look.
Use the following tips to help you stay on top of tire maintenance:
- Check tire pressure to ensure proper inflation. Under inflation can lead to excess heat, uneven tire wear, and decreased braking and handling capabilities, which may cause structural failures like blowouts and tread separation. Properly inflated tires will maximize tread life, improve handling, and increase fuel efficiency and overall driver safety.
- Follow proper tire rotation schedules. Recommended rotation patterns for your vehicle can be found in your owner’s manual. Routine tire rotations equalize and enhance front-to-rear and side-to-side tire wear. Remember: tire rotation will not prevent or circumvent wear issues caused by worn mechanical components.
- Balance tires as necessary. Out-of-balance tires may be detected in bumps that become more noticeable at higher speeds. Balancing tires is necessary during initial installation and during a remount. It is a good idea to get a Wheel Alignment Service.
- Install new tires in sets or pairs. The addition of one new tire to the rotation cycle can cause instability and create vehicle handling issues. When new tires are needed, two new tires should be installed on the rear of a vehicle, and the partially worn tires should be moved to the front of the vehicle.
- When the time comes to store your tires for next season, consider a dark place away from direct sunlight with low humidity. Tires should be stored away from solvents, grease, oil, or any ozone-producing electrical equipment, which have deteriorating effects on tires.
- Be mindful of abnormal tire wear or damage to your tires. Watch for signs of punctures, embedded objects, cracks, and bulges.
- Always keep a spare tire, and make sure it’s properly inflated and ready for use. You never know when you’re going to need it.
