Are Underinflated Tires to Blame for Tire Blowouts?

Although tire blowouts can occur at any time for a number of different reasons, it is wise that you inspect your tires to help prevent a blowout. If you live in warm weather climates, it is especially important that you keep your tires maintained. Here are some things to look for when inspecting your car's tires.

Underinflated tires are one of the biggest culprits when it comes to blowouts. If your tires do not have the proper air pressure, the internal components such as the rubber, steel or fabric will stretch beyond their design capacity. Over time, your tires will start to prematurely wear down and eventually blowout. Regularly checking your tires for the proper air pressure can help you avoid blowouts.
