A routine drive can take a turn for the hazardous once a tire blowout occurs. During a blowout, the rubber explodes and rips apart, leading to immediate pressure loss. Controlling the car becomes difficult, and an accident may result. Many drivers get caught by surprise by a blowout, despite previous warning signs existing.

Not caring for nor inspecting the tires leads people into blowout territory. Age and the weather can cause dry rot, which compromises tire integrity. Look for sidewall cracks, bumps, bulges, blisters, and more. You don't want to drive on worn or damaged tires, as they can explode.

Check the psi on the tires, as you need the right air pressure levels at all times. An overinflated tire could blow out upon hitting an object in Calgary, AB. So can an underinflated one, too.
