Best Way to Avoid a Tire Blowout

When your tire blows out it can be a very tense situation. If you are traveling at a high rate of speed it can even be life-threatening. While tire blowouts are not always 100% preventable- there are many steps you can take to mitigate the chances of a blowout happening on the road. Follow these tips to dramatically decrease your chances of a tire blowout.

Inspect all four of your tires at least once a week. While almost all new cars have sensors that will alert you to low air in your tires or alignment problems, these sensors are often not sensitive enough to pick up objects sticking out of your tires. These objects, like nails, screws, glass, etc., can get lodged in your tires and cause a blowout later on.
