Simple Techniques for Avoiding a Tire Blowout

Avoiding a potential tire blowout is as simple as paying closer attention to the overall health of the car tires. These are two ways to keep a closer eye on tire issues.

It only takes a minute or two to give the tires a check. What you are looking for are bulges in the tire walls or cracks in the tire treads. If you see uneven wear patterns in the tread of the tire and tread appear to be separating, this issue needs to be brought to the attention of a tire technician.

If your vehicle is not equipped with a tire pressure monitoring system, you need to use a tire gauge weekly to be certain each tire has enough air. Underinflated tires can, in fact, lead to a blowout.

To help avoid a potential tire blowout, schedule your next tire rotation appointment with Gorges Volvo Cars so we can get eyes on all those tire treads more frequently.
