Flat tires are common, especially if you’re in a cold climate or if your tires are older and need replacing. But a flat tire can happen to anyone at any time, and you need to be prepared to handle the situation quickly and calmly. You might be wondering, “What happens if you drive on a flat tire?” The truth is, you should never drive more than a few hundred yards on a flat tire, or you risk damaging your tire beyond repair. The best thing you can do when you see that you have a flat tire is to pull off the road and out of oncoming traffic. Once you’re safely off the road, get out of your car, and assess the situation.
