What is a Tire Repairs & Replacements service?
Lube Stop’s Tire Repairs & Replacements service involves the repair or replacement of damaged tires on your vehicle. Damage to tires can range between punctures, cuts, impacts, cracks, bulges and irregular wear. Your Lube Stop technician will take a look at your tires and assess if it can be patched or plugged. If these fixes are not an option, we will recommend replacing your tire and assist with the tire replacement service.
Tire patching consists of removing the tire from the rim and grinding around the tire damage to give a large, flat bonding area for the patch. The patch is then applied from inside the tire. After the patch has been sealed and dried, we will put your tire back on its rim and send you on your way.
Tire plugs are slightly different in that they get pushed into the damaged area of the tire from the outside. The plugs are sticky and expendable, so we simply adjust them until the air is no longer leaking from the tire.
What is a Tire Repairs & Replacements service for?
In order to ensure a ride that is as smooth and safe as possible, it is very important to make sure that you are not driving around on damaged, punctured or flat tires. Major safety issues can be caused by a slight variation in tire health. Such issues include tire imbalance, bent rims, vibrations, uneven tread wear, overheating and even blowouts. Not only can this be very expensive to repair, but it can cause very serious collisions.
Lube Stop technicians will assess your tire’s damage and determine if it is safe to repair or if a replacement would be a much safer option. If the tread on your tires is already low, it might be worth the expense of replacing them rather than fixing one.
Lube Stop often has specials and available rebates to help pay for the expense in replacing them. Just ask us and we’ll help you there.

Context for these Services
Your vehicle uses an internal combustion engine. This engine uses the combustion of fuel to power almost everything. This is done when fuel alongside an air oxidizer and spark plugs creates a working fluid flow circuit inside a combustion chamber.
In your internal combustion engine, the expansion of the high-temperature and high-pressure gases produced by combustion applies direct force to some component of the engine. The force is applied typically to pistons, turbine blades, rotors and nozzles. This force moves the component over a distance, transforming chemical energy into useful work.
Typically, your combustion engine is fed with fossil fuels like natural gas or petroleum products such as gasoline, diesel fuel or fuel oil. Your engine is the hub for many things, including those listed below.
- combustion chamber
- cylinder head
- set of spark plugs
- rocker arms
- fuel injectors
- connecting rods
- engine block
- timing system
- timing chain
All these work in unison to power all the other systems within your vehicle. Without a fully functioning engine, everything else suffers. So, let us at Lube Stop keep your engine functioning and everything else that relies on it.
