Concerned About a Blowout? Here’s What You Can Do

The thought of an unexpected tire blowout puts many drivers on edge. If that’s true for you, it’s important to know the steps that you can take to minimize the chances of misfortune on the road.

Although it may seem counter-intuitive, insufficiently inflated tires are one of the most common causes of blowouts. Tire pressure should be monitored regularly, and this is especially critical if outdoor temperatures have fluctuated recently. Tires should also be rotated every 6,000 to 8,000 miles and replaced in accordance with manufacturer recommendations. Careful visual inspection that includes the entire tread surface as well as the interior and exterior sidewalls is another great way for drivers to head off potential blowouts before they occur.
