Common Causes | Tire Blowouts
Regular maintenance and monitoring of tires is critical to avoiding tire blowouts. Tires that have been damaged by cuts or punctured by foreign objects should be replaced immediately. Truck tires also require proper inflation that needs to be monitored regularly. A tire blowout in any vehicle can be dangerous. A tire blowout in a heavy, cargo-filled, fast moving truck, can be even more dangerous. A large truck has less ability to maneuver and a harder time slowing down to avoid other cars. A truck with a tire that suddenly pops can lead to an imbalance of weight causing the truck to fishtail, jackknife, veering off the road and possibly rolling over. Other motorists sharing the road may be caught up in the accident and be severely injured or killed.
