Tips on Preventing Tire Blowouts

Most people do not expect to blow out a tire when they are driving. A blowout kind of happens "unexpectedly" in most drivers’ minds. To help you avoid that unexpected blowout, here are some tips to keep your tires in tip-top shape.

Most blowouts occur during the hotter months. So, you should check the air pressure in your tires at least once a week. It only takes a few minutes to look your tires over to see if they are low. If you do not know your tire's maximum allowable pressure, it should be located on the sidewall of the tire. Take a minute or two to look for obvious signs of wear and tear or leaks. You would be surprised at how many car owners take their tires for granted and just assume they are still good.
