Identifying Signs for Avoiding a Tire Blowout

Be on the lookout for these warning signs of potential tire failure.

When your car hits a pothole, you are doing damage to the front end which in turn affects the tires. Once the front-end alignment is knocked out of whack, the tires will begin to wear unevenly. Once this happens, the tread wears faster and the tire is now at a greater risk of blowing out. If you notice trouble steering, have the front end aligned as soon as possible.

If you were to take a closer look at the treads on your tire more often, you could spot issues before they had a chance to cause the tires to fail. Take five minutes from your day to look for any uneven wear, bulges, or cracks in the tire tread. If you see the tread is separating from the tire, don't delay in getting the tires inspected by the service center.

Bring your car to our service center here at Stivers Lincoln if you see any of these issues.
