How to Identify a Flat Tire is on the Way

Posted on

Our tires see it all — day in and day out — but little do we know about these hard-working rubber lifesavers. We are not really concerned about tires unless we are auto enthusiasts, work in auto service or — until we have a flat! If you have been in the situation before, especially on an extremely hot or chilly day, you would know what it feels like to experience a flat tire. Thankfully, some really cool mushroom plug kits prevent you from getting stuck on the side of the road and allow you to fix a flat tire on the go. Though these kits can help you survive in unfavorable conditions, the best thing to do is avoid these situations from happening in the first place. Here are a few ways to identify a flat tire is on its way- 

Tire Pressure
Driving on an under-inflated tire can cause wear on the inside or outside edge of a tire. When the tires are cold, don’t forget to check the tire pressure with a reliable tire gauge before you drive. If all of them are at the same pressure and within range of what it says on the door sill of the driver's door of the car, you're fine. If not, fill it up. If it continues to be low, get it checked by someone who knows what they're looking at.

Even Wearing
Regular inspection of tires is vital to make sure that they are not wearing. Look at the horizontal line in different parts of the tire. If the tread on either side of the tire is wearing evenly and to the point where that small raised area is, it might be a sign that it’s time for a new tire. Don’t drive on these tires as they are more likely to lead to the problem of a flat tire.
