Avoid a blowout by knowing the signs of a damaged tire

When you're headed to your destination, the last thing you want is to lose traction or have a tire blowout. Knowing the signs of worn and damaged tires can help keep you safe while you drive.

Damaged tires are prone to blowout. A damaged tire might have bulges or cracks on the outer wall. If your tire loses air regularly, it's a sign that it is damaged. You might also notice an object like a nail sticking into the tire.

Tires wear over time. If the tread depth gets too low, your traction will be affected. Regularly check for uneven tread wear. If you think your treads are worn, stick a penny upside-down into the treads. If you can see the top of Lincoln's head, your tires should be replaced soon.

Our team at Land Rover Fox Valley can inspect your tires and replace them if they are damaged or worn.
