Unfortunately, summer is behind us. It seems we’ve flown right past it and it’s barely visible in our rearview. What else do you see in your review? How many times have you gone on that camping road trip or visit Vancouver and seen an unfortunate family helpless on the side of the road beside their car? More often than not, we drive past and have faith that someone else will help. What if it were you experiencing the trouble — who is that someone else? One of the most common reasons why cars get forced to the side of the road is because of a flat tire. There is a lot of debris on the highways and even more if you go off roading or drive into the backcountry to camp. While Aggasiz is a beautiful place, it can take its toll on your tires. If you get a flat tire in Aggasiz, call Chilliwack Towing’s emergency line +1 (604) 792 – 7072
There are a few preventative measures you can take to ensure that your tires are not unnecessarily put at risk for damage. Regular tire inspections from a professional auto body shop can find issues with your tires. Unbalanced tires lead to uneven wear, bumpy rides, and an increased amount of damage beyond normal road wear. The beautiful natural settings can actually be quite hazardous to your tires as sharp rocks and debris easily puncture them, especially if your tires are old and worn. Contact Chilliwack towing if you puncture your tire. Flat tires are common in the backcountry of Aggasiz so Chilliwack towing is available 24/7.
If you get a flat tire while on the highway — heaven forbid, stay calm and move as close as you can to the side of the road, leaving some space for you to work and remain safe. Remember to turn your hazard lights on to indicate to other drivers that you need help and to let them know to keep their distance.
Once you’ve determined it’s safe, get out of your car and inspect the tire you suspect is flat. Try to spot any foreign objects protruding from your tire such as a nail, stone, or sharp piece of metal. If it’s night time or you can’t see anything in first glance, run your hands along your tires tread but be careful not to injure yourself. Your tire may just be low on air. Call the expert technicians at Chilliwack towing for assistance in Aggasiz, Chilliwack, Hope, Rosedale, Harrison Hot Springs, Abbotsford, Sardis, and Cultus Lake areas.
