3.16. A wheel puncture

The wheel puncture is trouble which each driver sooner or later faces. Air can leave a punctured wheel quickly or slowly, it depends and on the size of a subject which has pierced a wheel, and from what tyres are established on the car: chamber or бескамерные. With a small nail in бескамерной to the tyre it is possible to go many days before you will notice that the wheel "has lowered".
It is very important to define in time that there was a wheel puncture. During movement pay attention to behaviour of the car: if it began to be dispersed badly, the effort to a steering wheel has increased at maneuvering or course stability has worsened, necessarily check up pressure in wheels.
The most simple way to repair a wheel — to address in the nearest шиномонтажную a workshop where repair will make quickly, professionally and, as a rule, under quite reasonable price.

Do not try to reach to шиномонтажной a workshop on completely lowered wheel: it is enough to pass so some tens metres and the tyre should be thrown out.

It is necessary to replace the damaged wheel spare. Nevertheless this simple enough operation demands some skills.
At a wheel puncture include the alarm system, smoothly brake the car till the speed of 2-3 km/h, on I transfer try to move cautiously to edge проезжей parts and to stop as it is possible more to the right at a roadside and if it is possible, outside of проезжей parts. If road conditions allow and it does not contradict requirements of Rules of traffic, at a puncture of any wheel on the right side of the car nestle on the right roadside, at a puncture at the left — to left. Try not to stop the car in places where it is expensive badly it is looked through: in abrupt turns, on descents and liftings, bridges, in tunnels. If the car remained on проезжей parts, first of all provide own safety and safety of other participants of traffic! Include the alarm system and establish a sign on an emergency stop.
