What to do When Your Tire Blows Up

Updated: May 18, 2023

When driving, there are times that you will experience unexpected problems. There are a lot of scenarios that every driver hates to experience. And one of them is when your car tires blow up.

Due to semi-trailer blowouts, tire carcasses and rubber fragments litter American roads. Improved radial technology, sophisticated tread compounds, steel belts, and multiple plies supporting the tread provide tires with tremendous strength and longevity. Tire blowouts may be exacerbated by the worn tread, under-inflation, potholes, heat, and a gradual leak.

A tire blowout might be dangerous if you don't know what to do. While driving down the highway, even when you begin to feel a little bit of panic, do all in your ability to stay calm and immediately handle the situation.

  1. Stay CALM and DON'T panic.

  2. Turn on the emergency light.

  3. Make your grip on the wheel firmly.

  4. Briefly tap your gas.

  5. DON'T step on the brakes.

  6. Steer as straight as possible.

  7. Let your car slow down gradually.

  8. Slightly take your foot off the gas.

  9. Once you slow down, step on your brake slightly.

  10. Steer towards the right-hand lane.

  11. Pull over the car when it is safe.

  12. For safety reasons, please call a towing company to help you.

  13. If you find your tires flat before leaving your house, you can call for a service to change your tires.

If you can't change the tires yourself, you can call a towing company. When traveling at high speeds on underinflated tires, most blowouts occur. Tires that have seen a lot of use are more prone to go flat. If you're going on a long road trip, you should inspect your tires for wear and ensure they're not under-inflated. This may have been avoided if you checked your tire pressure once a month.
