Tips on Avoiding a Tire Blowout

There is no good time to have a flat tire, but a complete tire blowout can put you at serious risk on the road. Although you can't control everything, there are some easy steps you can take to make sure that you are as prepared as possible to avoid a tire blowout.

Checking your tire pressure is key. It is important to check the pressure of each tire when the car is totally cool. The pressure can dip a bit lower at lower temperatures. If you don't have a tire gauge, you can find one at a local gas station. You should also inspect the tread on your tires. Look for any sign that your tread is wearing unevenly as a sign that you might need new tires.
