A tire blowout is a dangerous emergency that can be easy to prevent with proper attention and care. Remember these tips to avoid a blowout while you are driving.

You first need to get in the habit of regularly inspecting your tires. You should examine them often for signs of damage or tread wearing. Use the old trick of placing a penny in the tire's tread. If you can see Lincoln's head, you should replace your tires for having worn out tread on them. You also need to look for signs of rot. Tires can rot easily if they are parked in water or exposed to intense heat for long periods of time. Simple elements from the weather can cause your tires to suffer from serious rot that can weaken their walls and surfaces.

Finally, rotate your tires often. Rotating them ensures that you get even wear and tear of your tires.
