How do I fix a warped car tire?

Is there a way I can fix my warped car tire? I was driving my car when I realized that my tire is flat and somewhat deformed. I don’t know how this happened, and I tried putting in more air but that didn't help it—and every time I try to drive fast, the car shakes. Help! How do I fix my warped tire (or alternatively, how can I exorcise my car)?

Answer
That’s definitely confusing and scary, but I’m happy to say that you can leave the witchcraft at home! The best thing you can do in this situation is to see your local mechanic.
The issue could be that your tire is out of balance, a joint is going bad, or it could be something else entirely.
Your mechanic should be able to diagnose the issue and get your driving safely as soon as possible! If you want to make sure the cost isn’t too high, check your warranty and see if it will cover the cost of repairing your tires.
While you’re waiting at the mechanic, you might want to make sure that you’re also getting the best deal on the insurance that you need. The easiest way to do this is through the Jerry app—we’ll get you customized quotes from top insurers so that all you need to do is pick the plan that works best for you! And once you’ve picked one, we’ll even help you switch.
Good luck with the repairs!
