Few driving hazards are more unnerving than an unexpected tire blowout. However, many tire blowouts are preventable if the driver takes some simple precautions.

Regular tire inspections and timely maintenance are the keys to avoiding tire blowouts. Before hitting the road, especially on a long trip, check tire pressure with a standard tire gauge and visually inspect each tire for bumps, weak spots and other signs of wear. Tires should be periodically rotated to promote even wear and should be replaced at intervals that are based upon the manufacturer’s recommendations and the specific road and driving conditions to which they are subjected.
