A tire blowout sounds like a scary thing, and it certainly can be. Tire blowouts can cause car accidents here in Dallas, TX, and out on the open road. The team at Dallas Collision Center would like to share some tips on how this can be avoided.

Tire pressure is the most important thing to keep an eye on when trying to prevent a blowout. Newer cars are typically equipped with a tire pressure monitoring system, but they cannot always be relied on. Periodic manual checks of your tire pressure should be done. If you or your TPMS does detect low pressure, do not put off correcting the issue.

Replacing worn-out tires can be expensive and a pain, but it is truly important to keep you safe. Tires that do not have enough tread can heat up quicker, which is why they are more likely to experience a blowout.
