How to Avoid a Tire Blowout

One of the scariest situations that can occur while driving is having a tire blowout. There are several factors that can contribute to creating conditions that lead to a blowout. Knowing what to look for can save you from this unwanted surprise down the road.

One of the leading causes of blowouts is an underinflated tire. It creates excess wear and heat on the sidewall. Checking tire pressure while the tires are cool just takes a few minutes and should be done monthly or before a road trip. Warm weather causes tires to increase a pound or two, and cold weather creates the same approximate decrease.
