About Tire Tools

What you thought would be a quick drive to the grocery store has turned into you sitting on the side of the road with a flat tire. This scenario does not have to be a big deal if you have a supply of tire tools on hand. Tire repair tools vary from replacement tools to patch kits; so, depending on your experience with vehicles, you can find the correct tools on eBay to keep you up and running. Patch kits offer a portable package to keep in your vehicle for emergencies, and can include sticky string plugs, mushroom plugs, or rubber inserts, which you use to fill the hole in your tire. These plugs are quick fixes during emergencies, and it is important to keep in mind that you then need to inflate your tire after repairing the hole, which means you need to either be near a gas station with air or have a portable compressor in the car as well. After you have temporarily fixed the tire, you likely need to replace the tire completely. If you want to do it yourself, tire-changing tools, such as a ramp or spoon tire levers for motorcycle tires, make a difficult job easier. Damaged tires are extremely common, so save yourself time and money by investing in tire tools to repair or replace your tires yourself.
