Not resolved

i took my car in for a simple flat repair was told that it was patched for 25 dollars.. a week later it was flat took it back in they said it could not be repaired because somehow someone had sprayed flat fix-it in the tire so they could not repair, no one had touched the tire but them .why if it were fixed would someone put in fix-it flat in a repaired tire.

i will never use tire plus again. just another excuse to have me buy tires or rims because i was tolded that the rims were bad also causing the tire to leak BULL....

I am from the corporate office of Tires Plus.

Can you send me an email at so I can get some more information? I'd like to get involved and try to help.




Most likely, the first repair was done the lazy way (simply plugging the tire without taking the tire off the rim and patching the inside), which is why they didn't know there was Fix-a-Flat inside the tire (they never looked inside).

If you repair a tire the lazy way, the plug won't stay in the tire because the Fix-a-Flat acts as a lubricant and the air pressure (sometimes) blows the plug out of the tire. (I've seen it happen.)

The Fix-a-Flat website claims that you can repair a tire with Fix-a-Flat in it as long as you clean out all the milky, stinky fluid. However, the truth is that Fix-a-Flat weakens the inside lining of the tire and increases the risk of liability. Businesses have a right to choose which risks they are willing to take on or not take on. Plus, that stuff is nasty. That's a job I am willing to pass on. It's a tough nasty job to get any fluid out of a tire. It's even nastier if it's a foul smelling, hazardous chemical that is flammable. The flammability is no joke. I actually know people who claim that the a tire "exploded" on them while breaking the bead.

In my opinion, Fix-a-Flat is nothing but trouble. A spare tire, a jack, and a lug wrench is much better than Fix-a-Flat. The only scenarios where Fix-a-Flat is appropriate is if

1) You got a flat at a dangerous location where you can't safely change the tire (for example in the middle of a bad neighborhood).

2) You are late to a job interview or other important event/occasion.

3) You are dressed in expensive clothing.


Tires plus is not a good shop, They rip off old and young people that know nothing about cars, this is sad considering the economy were in.
