Once you’ve determined which Honda is right for you and set off on the Latham roads, you may think the hardest part is behind you. That is, until you find yourself on the side of the street with tire troubles. Find out what to do when you get a screw in your tire, courtesy of Rensselaer Honda!

What You Need to Know

If you find a screw in your tire, keep the following in mind:

  • Don’t touch the screw. It may be plugging the hole so that air doesn’t leak from the tire, which would make driving extensively unsafe.
  • Connect with the Service Department at Rensselaer Honda to get the tire repaired or replaced before a blowout occurs.
  • The longer you drive with a screw in your tire, the worse the problem can get.

What to Do

Don’t let the screw get you down. Learn about some safe actions to take to ensure that you make it to the service department safely.

  • Once you are pulled over and parked on the side of the road, find the tire with the screw.
  • If you have a spare tire or donut, remove the tire with the screw, and replace it with the spare.
  • Avoiding roads with high speeds, make your way to the Service Department at Rensselaer Honda.

Our knowledgeable team will assess the damage done to your tire, and get you back on the road in no time.
