Tyres are a very crucial part of any vehicle and are often overlooked by many. Moreover, the importance tyres play in automobile safety is very high as it is the only part of a vehicle that is in contact with the road.
For your perspective, imagine travelling at speeds in your car and suddenly one of the tyres bursts. As even a mere imagination is frightening, it would be catastrophic in real life.
So, here are five important things that you can do to avoid a tyre burst/blowout. Moreover, following these steps will also ensure safety.
Check & Maintain Tyre Pressure Regularly
Nowadays, a lot of cars come with Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS), however, not all cars have this feature and it is essential to monitor the tyre pressure at regular intervals as it is very essential to evenly distribute the stress on tyres.
Do Not Park The Car For A Very Long Period Of Time
Parking your car for a long period of time without moving will cause the tyre wall at the position touching the ground to weaken over time. This weakening of the tyre wall is caused by air pressure stretching the side walls. This may result in a tyre burst while driving next time.
Overloading the tyres is often the main cause of tyre bursts while driving. Overloading beyond the rated load rating is a recipe for tyre bursts and we highly recommend you to understand the load rating of your car tyres before transporting heavy loads in your vehicle.
Do Not Drive With Bulged Tyres
Driving with bulged tyres is not only a danger to you and your car, but it also has the potential to turn into a quick disaster due to tyre bursts. Bulged tyre walls are caused due to weakened sections on the side walls, and caused by pressurised liquid's (air) tendency to escape through the weakest spot.
Do Not Use Retreaded Tyres
Though retreaded tyres are far cheaper than new tyres and better than bald tyres, they are not even close to new tyres when it comes to safety standards as these tyres have been weakened over time and the chances of a tyre bursting out is very high.
