Prevent Tire Blowout With Maintenance

Your tires are one of the most important parts of your car. They're your only real contact with the road. Blowing out a tire is dangerous, scary and can cause the car to spin out of control. Luckily, with proper tire maintenance, blowouts can mostly be avoided.

Checking tire pressure and wear to the treads is the most important step. Check your pressure when your car has had a chance to cool down, about three hours after you've finished driving for the day. It should be within the published range your car's manufacturer recommends.

Rotating your tires so they wear evenly is another way to prevent blowouts. It will also save you money in the long run. Newer cars usually have a tire pressure monitoring system. If this light comes on, it may be time to add air. If you need tire maintenance, stop by BMW of Fairfax the next time you're in Fairfax, VA.
