When you suffer a blowout on the road, it becomes necessary to bring the car under safe control. Defensive tactics, such as slowly moving to the side of the road while keeping a grip on the steering wheel, does help. Once the scary situation is over, you may wonder what caused the blowout. Sometimes, hitting a sharp object on the road can ruin even new tires. However, many blowout instances result from neglect.

Overinflation puts a tire at severe risk for a blowout. The rubber ends up stressed by the excess air. Ironically, putting less than the necessary amount of air also present blowout risks.

Aged tires, ones showing signs of dry rot, are prone to blowouts. Look for wear and tear related damage on the tires. Get them checked in Lititz, PA regularly.
