Oh NO! Flat Tire on the Sacramento Freeway.

Perhaps one of the scariest things to happen is having a flat tire or tire blow-out on the freeway. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has several recommendations:

What should I do if I have a tire blowout while driving?

The goal in any blowout is to keep the vehicle balanced and controllable. Do not panic. Any overreaction – including slamming on the brakes or abruptly removing your foot from the accelerator – can result in a loss of control over the vehicle. Instead, you should take the following steps:
Hold the steering wheel with both hands.
  • Maintain your vehicle speed if possible and if it’s safe to do so.
  • Gradually release the accelerator.
  • Correct the steering as necessary to stabilize your vehicle and regain control. Look where you want the vehicle to go and steer in that direction.
  • Once your vehicle has stabilized, continue to slow down and pull off the road where and when you judge it’s safe to do so.
THAT'S the rub! It is NOT safe for you to change your tire on the freeway, period! 
How about at work? Well, here's another question: how much does your time and clothing cost? Don't want to ruin both? Of course ! Call Uncle George! Oh, on vacation. Shoots!! 
The key question is: do you WANT to change your tire now? Of course not. It takes valuable time and effort out of your day. SOMEbody must do that! Lucky YOU! So much service comes to YOU these days: grocery and restaurants deliver, why not tires?!
To the rescue -  Premier Mobile Tire had the same idea. When you need it most is often the least convenient, right? You have a client meeting, go to your car, and shoots! Flat time! You have two choices, really: get grungy in that gutter, or call Premiere Mobile Tire. 916-371-1121.
I bet I know the answer. That's what I'd say, too. My Uncle George is always on vacation!
