Avoid Having a Tire Blowout

Having a tire blow out while you are driving can be very dangerous, as the force of the blowout can cause the vehicle to swerve sharply or even flip over. In order to avoid this happening, take these steps to ensure that your tires are in good condition.

Having tires that are underinflated is a major cause of tire blowouts. Check your tires frequently to ensure that they are inflated properly. The correct inflation pressure can be found in your owner's manual, on the glove box door, on the doorsill or on the fuel door. While checking the pressure, also take the time to check for extreme wear and other tire problems. Wheel alignment can also cause unusual wear on your tires, leading to tire issues.
