If you get a flat tire, don't drive on it. Either change it or get a tow to an expert in Madison tires like the Madison tire professionals at one of Madison Auto Care's seven NAPA service centers.
You're driving to the How-To Fest when one of your tires goes flat. The last thing you want to do is pull over and either change the tire (if you have a spare) or get a tow to a Madison tire repair shop. You just want to keep driving until you get to the show before you call anyone.
Don't do it. Stop. Now. Pull over. (Assuming you're in a safe place and, if you're not, drive the shortest distance possible to get to safety then stop.)
Driving on a flat can destroy the tire and parts of your car.
Autoguide.com points out: "Let’s start with the reasons why driving on a flat tire is not a good idea for the tire itself. A lot of flats occur because the tire gets punctured. Most things that create the puncture are small, like nails and screws.
"This means a simple tire puncture can be fixed with a tire plug. But, if a tire is driven on after the initial deflation occurs, more damage can occur to the tire, as the sidewalls can rupture and the initial puncture can expand."
And, autoguide.com says, it's not just your tire that is in danger of being harmed: "And if a tire degrades enough when being driven while flat, it can start to break apart and cause damage to several important components on a car. Brake lines, rotors, calipers, suspension components, wheels and fenders can get serious damage from a flat tire that begins to flail around in the tire well."
