Good tire shop around Edmonton?

I've got a puncture in one of my tires that I fixed about a year ago with a plug. It was fine until about a month ago, when it started a very slow leak. (-5 to 7 psi over a week, roughly). I checked it with soap bubbles, so that's how I know where it's coming from.

I kept topping-up the air once or twice a week, because I'm lazy. Finally, last night I put in a new plug and re-checked it with soap, and it looked good.

This afternoon, I checked again, and it's slowly bubbling like before. So I think it needs a patch from the inside this time, and get re-balanced.

Have you guys used any tire shop in or around Edmonton that you can recommend? I don't want some caveman wrecking my alloy rim or damaging the (useless) TPMS sensor.

Thanks for any tips!

If Princess Auto were a real girl, I'd ask her to marry me.

ive brought my 20s a few times to tire warehouse on 107 ave and 171 st. they deal with big rims and tires so less worries about a damaged rim



Really? Its the Internet take it easy.

Thanks for the tip. Sounds like the way to go.

It's not that I've got fancy aftermarket rims, or anything, but I imagine the stock Mazda alloys probably cost even more to replace than a lot of fancy aftermarket wheels. At least if my $125 mud flaps are any indication.

I haven't had time to take the wheel in yet, and I just put my offroad rims on for now. I'll have to get myself a "round tuit".
