If you change your own tire in an emergency situation, you should come in and see us about tightening your lug nuts. There is a science to tightening lug nuts and you just don’t go around in a circle, you have to tighten them like you would cut a pizza. We won’t go into details, but suffice to say, if you tighten your own lug nuts you could end up having them missing or getting your car way out of alignment. It is really important to do this correctly not only for the longevity of your tires, but also the longevity of you!
If you replace a tire in an emergency situation, come in so we can rotate and balance your tires, if needed, and make sure that your tire is attached securely and correctly to your vehicle. If you notice any tires leaking, also come in and see us for either a plug or replacement. If you live in Essex, Burlington, South Burlington, Colchester, Winooski, Williston, Shelburne and anywhere in the State of Vermont be sure to contact Handy’s Service Center for all your auto repair needs!
