Looking for a good tire shop to fix a flat (bead leak)

Looking for a good shop to fix a flat. Had the exact same tire leak at the bead last year. Canadian tire cleaned the corrosion on the alloy wheel but seems to back a year later.

I usually like going to simply tire but I hear management changed and it's not the same.

Considering Kal tire or limitless tire. Looking for places in the northwest of toronto or York region.


Anyone got any shop recommendations?

See if they can take a photo of the inner barrel of the wheel, or show it to you so you can see it's condition.

They can clean it up, add some bead sealer to help but if the rim of the wheel is corroding/damaged it'll probably continue. Make sure the shop replaces the valve stem.

You can try sourcing a used alloy. Depending on make/model.

Simply Tire did change ownership, but they're still a good shop. Would say to go there.
