What Should I Do During A Tire Blowout? by Best-One
Perhaps one of the most nerve racking things to happen while driving, other than an accident, is a tire blowout. There are a few “to do” and “not do” items that will help you stay calm and maneuver your vehicle to safety.
Let’s start with the two things you should NOT do during a tire blowout:
Now that you know what not to do let’s focus on the three things you SHOULD do in case of a blowout:
These do’s and don’ts apply for both front and back tire blowouts. The only difference between the two is what you feel in the vehicle; for a front blowout you will feel it more in your vehicle’s steering, in a rear blowout you will feel in more in the seat and body of the vehicle.
Knowing the right way to handle a blow-out will help keep you safe on the roads. Stay safe and contact your local Best-One® with any questions you might have.
