How to Avoid a Tire Blowout, and What You Should Do If You Experience One

A tire blowout isn't a common occurrence, but there is always a risk that it could happen. There are some risk factors that increase your chances of experiencing a tire blowout. There are also some ways that you can try to prevent a tire blowout from occurring.
  • Periodically, check your tire tread to make sure it is wearing down evenly. You also want to make sure you have an adequate level of tread left. If your tire tread is thinning, you notice cracks in the rubber or the tire is bulging in spots, this indicates an issue with your tire that could lead to a blowout.
  • Monitor your tire pressure regularly. You don't want to have too little air in your tires, but you don't want too much either.
If you do experience a blowout, do your best to slow your speed and maneuver off the road to a safer spot.
