How To Prevent Tire Blowout With TIRECRAFT
While only some stores offer the Roadside Assistance program detailed later, any TIRECRAFT dealer can help you prevent tire blowout with proper maintenance service, quality products, and expert advice. Here’s a quick look at a few of the ways TIRECRAFT specialists can support your blowout prevention plan:
1. Monitor Tire Pressure At Your Local TIRECRAFT
Although it’s one of the leading causes of tire blowout, most people drive with improper tire inflation. In fact, in one report by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), more than 75% of all participants’ vehicles had at least one underinflated tire.
Diagnostic difficulty is partially to blame; most people cannot spot improper inflation until it’s far too late—that same IEEE study found “visual checks are often insufficient”—and most tire-pressure monitoring systems (TPMS) only light up after you’ve fallen well below the recommended level.
Here’s where your local TIRECRAFT can help. Whether you’re looking to buy a manual gauge, run TPMS diagnostics, or get a professional reading and tire service, you’ll find it all at your local TIRECRAFT. With more than 220 locations across the country, qualified help is only a few clicks away—just use the Find a TIRECRAFT tool to locate a tire shop near you.
2. Replace Worn Tires And Parts At Your Local TIRECRAFT
According to a roadside survey, 40% of vehicles on suburban roads and 29% of vehicles on highways had mechanical defects or tire troubles that could potentially lead to an accident. Tread-bare tires overheat in a hurry, putting you at much greater risk of tire blowouts on the road.
Some tires come equipped with tread indicators, but not all. Your local TIRECRAFT tire specialist can help you detect the signs of treadwear early and replace worn tires when the time comes.
3. Buy The Right Tires To Reduce Your Risk Of Tire Blowout
By working with a local TIRECRAFT expert, you eliminate the risks of tire blowout related to improper tire size, speed rating, and low-quality tire products. We carry all the top tire brands, and we can accommodate any vehicle type or tire need.
Treat Heavy Vehicle Tire Blowout With TIRECRAFT Roadside Assistance
