Easy Ways to Avoid a Tire Blowout

When tires are under inflated, the tube that holds air doesn't effectively handle impacts that occur while the wheels roll over hazards. Because an under inflated tire has less air than a properly inflated wheel, the lack of air typically leads to a blowout on the road. Besides under inflation, there are other problems that can cause a blowout, and most of these issues are easy to detect since they happen on the main tire housing. The most common exterior problems are abrasions, cuts, and bulges. In order to avoid these issues and a possible blowout, you must follow a few maintenance steps.

All automobiles have inflation specs for different tires, and you can review this information in the vehicle owner's manual. Depending on the automobile, this information may also be available on the fuel door or along the edge of the door sill.

Once you have this information, you must check the tire pressure on a regular basis. During each inspection, wait until the tires are cool. In many cases, the heat in various tires will drop following long road trips within several hours.

Because tire pressure increases and decreases based on the temperature in an environment, you'll benefit from seeking professional tire maintenance services. If you need service options for tires and other automobile components, visit Volvo Cars of Evansville.
