Tire Sidewall Repair Basics

Tire sidewall repair is something most car owners leave to professionals, and with good reason. While it's possible to fix a tire sidewall, some experts are hesitant to recommend this project as a do-it-yourself activity.

Why You Shouldn't Fix Tire Sidewalls

When you notice that your tires need to be repaired on the sidewalls, you may be tempted to complete this project on your own. But this is not recommended for one main reason: it doesn't typically work. While you may be able to plug up the hole, the structure of a sidewall is different from other tire areas.

The Boot Fix

A boot is a larger piece of rubber material that can be placed inside of a punctured tire. This rubber is attached to the inside and it helps to protect the tube of the tire. However, this process requires taking off the entire tire and even then the boot will not last forever. The boot can move out of place, causing the tire to be vulnerable to damage. For some, this is too labor intensive of a process to have a mechanic complete or to complete on their own.

Used Tires

Instead of buying a new tire to help replace the worn tire sidewall, a used tire can be a cost-effective way to make your car safer. However, just as...
