Tire Repair

Tire Repair

We know in Pasadena you will pick up a nail or two.  A continuous slow leak and deflated tire can permanently damage beyond repair, affect steering and control, and threaten the safety of your vehicle.  Leave it up to our technicians to repair your tire to industry standards using the highest quality materials.  You will have peace of mind knowing your repair will last the life of the tire.

Repairing your tire is a delicate process.  We will disassemble the tire from the vehicle, clean and prep the inside of the tire, and apply the necessary repair patch-plug on the backside of the tire.  Every repair is double checked afterwards for quality.

Is my tire repairable?

Tire repair depends on several factors, primarily depending on the overall condition of the tire and location of the puncture.  Most tires we see are repairable, and our technicians will be able to examine your tire free of charge.

Our repair guidelines fall under the U.S. Tire Manufacturers Association standards.

  •       Repairs can be performed within the “puncture repair area”.  Punctures to the sidewall or the shoulder of the tire is unrepairable
  •       Punctures ¼ inch and smaller are repairable
  •       No more than 3 patch-plugs in each tire

Crown City Tire Repair includes:

  • Dismounting the tire from the wheel
  • Proper inspection and cleaning the underside
  • Apply a patch-plug on the backside of the tire
  • Adjust all tire pressures to the correct specification
  • Reset the Tire Pressure Monitoring System

Typically, a tire repair can take 30 to 45 minutes to complete.

A proper tire repair will last the life of the tire.

A tire plug repair is meant to be temporary repair and not as a safe permanent repair.  We only use a patch-plug design that is placed on the underside of the tire.
