How to Avoid a Blowout

Having a blowout while driving down the highway is a scary experience. It's also costly and a hassle. Avoiding a blowout is relatively easy though, and routine tire care is the perfect first step to avoidance.

You've probably been told to have your tires rotated every six months, and you should follow the recommendation. Tire rotation encourages even tire tread wear and tear, which is crucial to eliminating a blowout. Tire tread helps your tires grip the road, and if it's worn out, the integrity of your tire is failing, and you could have a sudden blowout. If you hit a large pothole, or accidentally run over a curb, you could knock off your alignment enough to risk a blowout. The most common cause of blowouts is underinflated tires, which is easy to monitor and avoid.

Driving with poor tires is dangerous. Make an appointment with the auto service team at Wolfchase Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram for tire service.
