The Importance of Avoiding a Tire Blowout

Tire blowouts are more than just a slight annoyance. They can also be extremely dangerous if you're traveling at a good speed on the highway. We at Thys Motor Company can offer you tips on how to avoid being the victim of a tire blowout.

Although there may be circumstances where a tire blowout cannot be avoided, good tire maintenance can often prevent tire blowouts. Follow these important tips. Rotation - Try to have your tires rotated every 5,000 to 8,000 miles. Alignment - Your wheels should be aligned anytime you have new tires installed or if you notice a problem with your tires. Tire Pressure - Your tires should always be inflated with the amount of air that's recommended in your owner's manual. Check if more frequently in extreme temperatures.
