In order to reduce the chances of having a tire blowout while you are traveling on the road, you’ll want to follow these simple yet effective tips. If the tire monitoring system or your tire gauge show low pressure in one or more tires, get it addressed now. The longer you drive with under-inflated tires, the more you increase the chances that can damage the tires and lead to a potential tire blowout.

Check the pressure in the tires often, and while you’re doing so, give the tread on each tire a visual inspection too. What you are looking for are things like worn patches, loose tread, cracks, or bulges, all have the potential to lead to the tire failing and happening while you’re driving along at high speed. Visiting Mercedes-Benz of Des Moines a few times a year for a tire rotation appointment will reduce the likelihood of these issues getting by you.
