How to Avoid a Tire Blowout

A tire blowout can happen for any number of reasons. When they do, however, they can disrupt the travel plans of truckers as well as those who are traveling by Interstate to their destinations. Avoid blowouts by following a few simple rules that will minimize your roadside downtime.

Underinflated tires are the prime cause of blowout. No matter what size of tire you have, underinflation is the leading cause of tires blowing out. Misalignment is also another cause. Make sure your vehicle has proper alignment before embarking on long journeys. Advanced wear is a third cause. Tires that have little grip on the road can blow out easily. If you have a vehicle with a TPMS system, pay attention to the warning system, which can indicate a problem.
