How many of you have gotten a flat tire and had to wait for help? It happened to me, as I drive a lot. I knew how to change a tire but I am 73 years old and didn't have the strength. I went into the automotive section and saw this can of "FIX A FLAT". I bought a can, just in case I did have a flat again.

It is very easy to use. Knowing it works, I keep a couple of cans in my car. I also use it for my lawn tractor and boat tires. This is a temporary fix until you get it fixed or buy a new tire.

Flat tire repairs due to a nail can charge anywhere from $10 to $20. Discount Tires offers free flat tire repairs, no matter where you bought your tires from. There are over 900 Discount Tire locations in the United States. If you ever have a flat tire with a nail, try Discount Tires. If you do not have a Discount Tire around, you can call the bigger tire retailers and ask if they provide complimentary services.

I was beyond pleased with their service.


For a non-appointment, the wait time was about 1 hour and 15 minutes. The tire technician took his time with patching up my tire, balanced the tire and made sure all four of my tires lug nuts were secured. He also pumped up the air pressure and cleaned my tires to new again!

While at home, before going on a trip, check the original manufacturer's tire tool kit to see if you can change the tire if needed.
