How to Avoid a Potential Tire Blowout

There are a lot of different factors that can contribute to having a tire blowout while you are driving along. Primarily, you want to make sure that your tires are in good shape. The treads shouldn't be too low and you shouldn't be driving around on a spare. If your tires are fine, there are some other things you can do to prevent a blowout from happening, such as:

  • Don't hit the accelerator too hard. Slamming your foot down on the pedal can cause too much pressure in the lines.
  • Don't slam on the brakes too quickly either.
  • If you feel your vehicle is skidding or you are losing control, slowly tap your brakes to try and regain control rather than using too much force.
