Prevent Tire Blowout with Regular Inspections

The tires on your vehicle are exposed to wear and tear on a regular basis. They could have unseen damage that increases your risk for tire blowouts. By inspecting key components, you can ensure that your tires are safe for the road.

One of the easiest things you can check is tire pressure. You can check the tire of each individual wheel and your spare with a simple gauge in a matter of minutes. It's also recommended that you check for physical damage. Pay close attention to the treads on both sides of the tires. If you notice any physical damage that compromises the safety of the tires, get it fixed as soon as possible. If you've recently hit a curb, take a look at the alignment of the wheel in question as well.

We invite you to visit us at Hendrick Honda Hickory today. We'll be more than happy to check your tires and take care of all your automotive needs.
