1985 Audi 4000 Quattro Tire Repair Services

Repairing Your Audi 4000 Quattro Tire

Cities are growing. Roads are expanding. There's construction around every corner! New progress is exciting, but the road debris it leaves behind may mean trouble for your tires. If your 1985 Audi 4000 Quattro is in need of a tire inspection or possible flat tire repair, Firestone Complete Auto Care has your back. Our tire technicians can determine whether it's safe to plug and patch the tire, or whether it needs to be replaced. We'll start by evaluating the state of wear, the location of damage, type of damage, and the size of the damage.

If a repair on your 1985 Audi 4000 Quattro tire is feasible and safe, the repair process is actually fairly simple: (1) Separate the tire from the vehicle wheel, (2) fill in the area that’s been punctured to prevent damage from moisture, and (3) seal the inner liner with a repair unit to prevent air loss.

Audi 4000 Quattro Tire Replacement

Unfortunately, some 1985 Audi 4000 Quattro tire damage can’t be effectively repaired. Even if your tire damage is minor, if your tires have less than 2/32nd inch of tread remaining, a repair isn’t possible (or safe). At this tread depth, the tire is worn out and must be replaced. Other tire damage that can't be safely repaired includes a tire with a puncture larger than ¼ inch in diameter; a puncture that lies outside the tire tread area; multiple punctures that are too close together (less than 16 inches between them); and a tire with tread separation or significant cuts.

Depending on what Audi recommends for your car, you’ll want to consider purchasing one new tire, two new tires, or a new full set. For example, it’s usually recommended that you replace all four tires at the same time on AWD vehicles. Why? Because having four identical tires is vital for the AWD system to perform like it’s supposed to. Just replaced your tires and only one is damaged? You may not need to buy another new full set after all. It’s possible that you will only need to replace the tire that’s damaged – just make sure it’s the same size, type, and brand as the rest of your tires. Your tire technician can help you decide how many tires to replace and the kind of tire to purchase.

Do I Need a Tire Inspection for My Audi 4000 Quattro?

A flat tire is a surefire sign of tire damage, but other indicators of tire issues aren’t so easy to spot. Tire damage can also show itself through subtle symptoms, like dents in your wheel rims, excessive noise coming from the exhaust system, bumps or bulges in tire sidewalls, or even leaks underneath the car. Bring your 1985 Audi 4000 Quattro in for a tire inspection so we can assess the damage and help keep you safe on the road.

Audi 4000 Quattro Tire Repair Questions

  • Can I drive my Audi on a flat tire? Driving on a flat tire is not a good idea. Your 4000 Quattro engine will keep running with a flat tire, but you could damage your wheel by continuing to drive on a flat.
  •  Is temporary sealant bad for my Audi's tires? Temporary sealants will solve your problem… for a little bit. If you’ve seen temporary or emergency tire sealant before (it usually comes in a can), it can be tempting to turn to this as a solution for your flat tire. Keep in mind that these fixes could buy you some time to get to Firestone Complete Auto Care for a proper repair, but they could also cause some harm in the process (for example, damage to your TPMS). Plus, using a product like this could void your tire warranty.
  • How long can I drive my Audi on a spare tire? Don't rely on your spare tire for too long. Your 1985 Audi 4000 Quattro may come equipped with a compact spare tire. A spare is different than an everyday tire and is only designed to be driven a certain number of miles at lower speeds.
