Big Repairs Needed to Fix Potholes
We are seeing more potholes related to the harsh winter we are having this season. With temperature swings from near zero to the high 40’s, potholes are inevitable. Hitting a pothole with your car is nearly unavoidable.
If and when you do hit a pothole, don’t ignore it. You may have done serious damage to the tire or rim. The damage may cause a tire to lose pressure, which sometime is not noticed until later on, sometimes not until the next day. Take a look at all the tires and wheels. If you see damage to the wheel or tire, contact us at Osceola Garage or your automotive service professional right away. For safety reasons, your car may need to be towed.
Another thing to consider is damage that may not be that obvious; such as wheel alignment issues, balance issues, suspension damage and steering damage. Having you car inspected periodically during the winter and early spring for pothole-related damage will save you time and money in the long run. It always best to spot a problem early, before it turns into a bigger problem.
