How to Prevent a Tire Blowout

A tire blowout is a sure way to ruin your day and make you have to waste valuable time and resources getting it fixed. Fortunately, there are ways to avoid tire blowouts, the most effective being to educate yourself on what causes a blowout so that you better know how to avoid one.

The most common cause of a tire blowout is underinflated tires. The solutions are simple: check your tires monthly to ensure that they're properly inflated. All tires don't have the same inflation rates, though, so you'll want to check your owner's manual, doorsill, glove box door or fuel door to find out what your inflation pressure should be.

In addition to the tire pressure, alignment, rotation, tread and many other factors can also cause a tire blowout if they're not maintained. For ease of avoiding a tire blowout, contact Honda of Ames today for all your auto maintenance needs.
