Preventing Tire Damage

The folks at DCH Kia of Temecula want to make sure that you always get to your next destination safely. Therefore, we want to share some tips that can help an individual avoid tire problems such as a blowout. One key is to make sure that the tires are filled according to manufacturer specifications.

If a tire has too little air, it could experience friction and heat as it grips the road. If a tire has too much air, it may become too stiff and pop as it rotates or when it hits an object on the road.

Checking tire pressure is as easy as sticking a manual or digital gauge into a tire's pressure sensor. While checking the air pressure, be sure to check for signs of damage such as bulging or cuts to the tire wall. A lack of tread could also increase the odds of a blowout.
