Whether you experience a puncture or a blowout, it's not a good idea to drive on a flat tire to get to a tire repair shop. The only exception to this rule would be that you need to get your family to safety. Driving on a flat—even a tire with a nail still stuck in it—can cause further damage and will almost always increase your flat tire repair cost. Also, remember not to drive on a spare tire farther than the owner's manual indicates.

So, how much does flat tire repair cost? It might surprise you. A simple tire repair cost is very minimal. However, the real cost will come to you later if you neglect to have the tire repaired as soon as possible and especially if you continue to drive on it.

Of course, a flat tire repair cost depends on the extent of the damage. If you repair a simple puncture as soon as possible, it may run between $15 and $30. A simple tire service typically utilizes plugs. These should last indefinitely, but it's a good idea to regularly check the tire pressure on any tires you've had plugged.

If you continue to drive with a flat tire, the repair costs will escalate, and in many cases, the tire or tires will all need to be replaced. Continuing to run on flat tires can also negatively affect the wheels, brakes, and suspension, not to mention the towing expenses that will be incurred when you are no longer able to drive your car without new tires.

Even more important than your flat tire repair cost is your safety. If you don't know how to change a flat tire or if you don't have the tools, don't try to do it yourself. It’s the smart thing to call for help!
