Don’t Drive on a Flat Tire
Depending on the dimension of the leak, the tire may deflate slowly or quickly. Which may result in the following problems:
- Failing of or damages to the valve stem;
- Allowing air to escape from the valve or inducing damage through intentional puncturing
- Rubbing of the tire against the roadway, tearing the tire, or separation of tire and rim by collision with additional objects;
- Extreme tire tread wear causes explosive tire failure or causes roadway fragments to tear through it.
Some tires, particularly a slow leakage, can be mended and re-inflated; others must be changed, specifically those with worn tread.
How to Inspect Your Tires
Here are some basic methods to catch tire problems before they become costly or harmful. Take a good examination of each tire in a well-lit environment. Check for uneven tire wear, which can easily be caused by:
- Excessive or inadequate air pressure
- Problems with tire positioning or tire balancing
- Complications with the suspension
- Uneven tire wear could be a sign that you could have to have your tires rotated
These might imply you need new tires— quickly. Driving with a flat tire, specifically at high speeds, may result in a fatal crash.
Signs You Need New Tires
Sometimes a tire can’t be repaired but needs to be replaced. Some complications that can trigger a blowout include:
- Cracking or protruding treads or sidewalls that might indicate there is wear or weak point
- Foreign things that penetrate the tire (nails, screws, glass)
- Tread pulling away from the body of the tire
