What causes tire blowouts?

Tire blowouts occur when there is not enough air pressure in the tire, causing the tire to stretch further than what it is meant to until the tire becomes separated from the internal fabric and steel cord reinforcement. Reasons why this drop in pressure may occur include:

  • Defective tires
  • Heat
  • Not inflated properly
  • Potholes
  • Slow leak
  • Worn treads
