How Basic Tire Precautions Can Prevent A Tire Blowout

The most common reason for a tire blowout is when a tire is under-inflated. To help prevent this from happening, you should regularly check your tire pressure. This can be done manually using a tire gauge. It is also important to have the proper inflation pressure for your vehicle. You should find the recommended inflation pressure in your manual, and it can also be found written in your glove box compartment and on the doorsill.

Most vehicles are now equipped with a TPMS, or Tire Pressure Monitoring System. This system will display an alert to you on your dashboard if it senses that a tire in your vehicle has low pressure. If you get such an alert, you should check your tires and reinflate them if necessary.

There are many other preventive measures you can take to prevent a blowout. Having regular tire rotations, realignments and changing your tires when they are worn will lessen the chance of a blowout of your tires. You can get this maintenance done in Temecula, CA at our auto parts and repair shop.
