Some of these guidelines include an inner seal for the tire and a plug-fill for the tire injury (meaning, a simple plug is not sufficient), disallowing repairs to the sidewall of a tire, or tire repairs that overlap on the inner liner.

Why BRAKEmax Is The Best Choice
It is important to have a professional auto shop you can rely on to help maintain your tires. When you are searching for tires in Tucson, come to BRAKEmax Tire & Service Centers. Here are some tips to make sure BRAKEmax is your best choice:
How To Get the Best Tire Service
1. Choose A Repair Shop Before You Need It
There is nothing worse than being rushed to get your tire fixed and not having a repair shop you trust. This clouds your judgment, often leading to poor choices. Take the time to do your research now before you are in that position. You can try out a few of the local auto repair shops in your area. Have them take care of a small repair or preventative maintenance job, like a simple flat tire repair. Pay attention also to customer service.
2. Ask Other People You Trust
Get referrals from friends and family. This will give you honest insight from people you know and confidence in selecting BRAKEmax as the best shop.
3. Read Through Online Reviews
Seek out as many reviews as possible especially from those who bought tires or had a tire repair at BRAKEmax. This will give you insight from consumers about their real experiences before you need any work yourself.
4. Inquire About the Shop’s Licenses and Certifications
Ask about the shop’s licenses and mechanics’ certifications. Look particularly for the Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) certification. This ensures your vehicle will be serviced by experienced, professional technicians.
5. There Is More Than Price
Pricing should only be one thing you base your decision on. The lowest price does not always equal poor service and the most expensive does not mean the best service. Take other factors into account when selecting a shop. Pay attention to non-repair related things like the customer waiting area and cleanliness of the shop. Does the shop appear organized or is it cluttered and messy?
6. Get Multiple Estimates
Get a written estimate from all shops you are considering. BRAKEmax always provides a written estimate of work recommended and answers all your questions before work is started.
Ask the service staff to explain the problem and repairs in layman’s terms. You must be clear on exactly what needs to be done to get the most value for your money.
7. Look for Special Deals and Coupons
BRAKEmax offers tire deals or coupons every day. We want to make tires and tire services more affordable.
Tire Services at BRAKEmax
You can count on us for superior auto repair matched with unequaled customer service. Here are the tire services we offer:
Your tires wear differently on each wheel assembly and hitting a pothole or curb with one wheel can put that tire out of alignment. Tires with uneven wear reduce fuel economy and lead to tire failure. This puts your family and other passengers at risk in your vehicle. All it takes to alleviate this is a tire rotation, part of any preventative maintenance check at BRAKEmax. Rotating the tires on the wheel assemblies ensures even tread wear and a safer ride.
Balancing the tires on a vehicle is different from rotating them. Balancing distributes a tire’s weight equally around the entire circumference of the tire. Out-of-balance tires cause uncomfortable vibrations and can lead to instability on the road. It can also lead to premature wear of suspension and steering components. Our mechanics use the latest technology to check the balance and then correct it.
If your tires are wearing around the outside edges or the car is pulling to one side or the other, the tires may need to be aligned. An adjustment is made to the vehicle’s suspension system that joins the wheels to the body of the car. This adjustment will change the angle of the tires, affecting how they make contact with the road.
Tire Pressure Monitor System (TPMS) Repair
This system monitors the rotational speed and tire pressure of the tires. It’s often difficult to visually determine tire pressure, so the TPMS notifies you quickly if there is a pressure issue. One of the main causes of early tire wear is low tire pressure, so learn to check it yourself in between preventative maintenance appointments. If you need help with this, set up an appointment to have the pressure checked and to learn how to use a tire gauge yourself.
BRAKEmax routinely deals with tire punctures and leaks. If a tire can be repaired, it saves money on tire replacements if the repairs are done safely. We make sure the repairs meet the specifications outlined by the RMA. And we also sell tires!
Frequently Asked Questions
No – Rubber Manufacturer Association guidelines prohibit unsafe repair procedures like using an old-fashioned ‘plug’. The proper procedure calls for the internal application of a plug-patch, which both seals the lining and fills the void left by whatever damaged the tire.
No – and you shouldn’t buy them, either! Used tires are not guaranteed to be safe because you have no way of knowing what kind of service life they’ve seen.
