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.

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...
