flat tire ?

4 posts in this topic

in 7 years of ATV ownership, I have my first flat tire. sorry to say I don't have a cool story to go with it, I ran over a nail at my place.

What do you guys do?? does it need to go to the dealer, or can I take it to a tire shop and have it plugged?? it's in a lug, but went through and leaks when I take out the nail.

thanks in advance

Get a tire patch kit. Patch it and look for some 6 ply tires. You could also run some slime in the tires to make sure of the seal, but it sure makes a mess if you want to change tires.

If it was me, I would call it bad luck hitting a nail, but a good excuse to get some new tires.

A tire shop can put a patch on the inside of a tire. With the right tools you can do it yourself, but it can be very tough to break the bead on an atv tire.

Go to Wally world and get a tire repair kit and put a plug in it.
