A tire blowout is a big hazard while driving, and it can happen anywhere and at any time. Knowing how to avoid one helps you to stay safe on the road. The main way to avoid a tire blowout is to regularly check your tire pressure. Also check the tread, looking for spots with excessive wear.

It is also important to have your car's alignment checked. Misalignment is another cause of uneven wear and tear on your tires. Tire rotation is another important action to take for preventing a blowout. Your vehicle's owner's manual should have a recommended schedule for alignment and tire rotation. If it doesn't, have the tires rotated every 6,000 to 8,000 miles or sooner if needed.
