Defective Tire Prevention
Tires are arguably the most important aspect of any vehicle. They are responsible for safety as well as the performance of your vehicle, both of which are not typically paired together. A defective tire can not only lead to a devastating accident but also make your vehicle significantly less efficient than a manufacturer advertised. Despite all of this, many car owners fail to see the importance of tires and because of this, they are one of the most neglected parts on a vehicle.
Tips for Tire Safety
Since tires are often neglected, many vehicle owners who currently have defective tires don’t realize it until it is too late. Tires unexpectedly pop all the time and sometimes this is unavoidable. However, there are many things that a vehicle owner can do to minimize the chance of a tire-related accident. Below are a few tips to ensure your tires are safe:
- Check air pressure frequently
- Check occasionally to see if there are any safety recalls on your tires
- Ensure that your vehicle wheels are always balanced
- Verify that your tires are not over 10 years old
Uneven wearing of tread, repair shop error, and manufacturer negligence are all possible causes for a defective tire. But despite whose fault it is that a tire is defective, it is best to always take the safety of your vehicle into your own hands.
