Dealing with a flat or blown out tire can be a highly inconvenient and stressful situation for any driver. With proper maintenance and care for your car’s tires, you can prevent the likelihood of ever experiencing a blowout. For a closer look at how the technicians at our auto repair centers in the Phoenix and Tucson areas can help you maintain your tires, here are some tips for avoiding a tire blowout:
Check Your Tire Pressure Regularly
To avoid a tire blowout, you should be sure to check your tire pressure on a monthly basis. If your tire pressure is too low, you are a higher risk of experiencing a blowout. Using a tire pressure gauge, you will be able to compare your current tire pressure with the factory recommended pressure that is printed on the tire.
Examine Your Tire Treads
Your tire treads offer a great deal of information about the condition and safety of your tires. By regularly examining your tire treads, you will be able to notice when your tires have become too worn. At the first sign that your tire treads have worn down too far, you should schedule an appointment to have them replaced.
Schedule Regular Tire Maintenance
At Greulich's Automotive, a technician will be able to inspect your tires for signs of damage. Have your tires regularly rotated, balanced, and aligned by your mechanic. By scheduling these regular maintenance procedures, you will ensure that your tires are in good shape and reduce your likelihood of a blowout.
