Signs That Your Tires May be Ready to Experience a Blowout

Evidence of tire blowouts is strewn most freeways. For Ventura, CA drivers, even the mere prospect of having a blowout can be downright terrifying. The good news is that there are a number of ways to both predict and prevent these events. At Kirby Kia of Ventura, we're dedicated to helping motorists avoid dangerous blowouts with simple preventative strategies.

Take a Good Look at Your Tires Before Heading Out

When they're functioning right, tires are easy to overlook and ignore. Drivers, however, should never go more than four weeks without giving their tires a quick once-over. During these inspections, check the sidewalls for cracks, the treads for evidence of cracking and severe wear, and the entire tire structure for signs of dry rot. All of these things indicate a dangerous weakening of the tire and an increased likelihood of experiencing a blowout.

Be Mindful of Damages from Improper Use

Scraping your tires against the side of the curb when parking and other forms of improper use can also make you more likely to experience a blowout when traveling at high speeds. As you perform your tire inspections, check to see that past events haven't undermined the integrity of these important components. You can also come by Kirby Kia of Ventura to have a complete, professional tire inspection performed.
