How to Avoid Tire Blowouts: Proper Inflation

Underinflated tires are the leading cause of tire blowouts which can result in accidents and injury. Ensuring that your tires are inflated to safety specifications, is one great way to avoid blowouts. The inflation amount may be found on your vehicle's doorsill, glove box door, or fuel door. It will also be listed in your vehicles owner's manual.

Monitoring your tires, including spares, for bulges, cuts, damage from impact and scrubbing, erosion, and proper inflation monthly and before every road trip will help alert you to when it's time to replace your tires or have them evaluated. When your tires are properly inflated, you'll achieve better fuel economy and your tires will last longer.
