The Why

 

You need it, but don't know you need it!

 

This unfortunate situation, which often happens at an unexpected moment, can seriously ruin a driver's day as well as their safety.

 

Why do you get a flat tyre!

 

Bad road conditions like potholes, uneven roads, and unexpected debris can make your car's wheels and undercarriage prone to damage. The more terrible the state of the road, the higher the danger of getting a damaged tyre.

Over-inflated tyres. An over-inflated tyre can create a pressure situation on the tyre leading to a sudden blowout. You should note the maximum limit of the pressure needed for your vehicle to avoid a blowout. You can find these details either on the fuel cap, driver's door or the passenger's door. 

How to prevent a flat tyre

As pro-active measure you could install Puncture Safe. Take a look at the website for more information: www.puncture-safe.co.uk

Despite the fact that it is occasionally unavoidable, explore backup ways if you know you’ll be driving near construction areas or roads that are very unkempt. Be on the look out for debris in the road like: sharp metals, glass, nails and even potholes, as all these would all be able to cause punctures and damage a tyre. Hitting a large pothole may result in harm to your tyres, wheels and other parts of the car. Check your tyre pressure! It's essential to ensure your car's tyres are properly inflated. It has been suggested by National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) to use a tyre pressure gauge to check each tyre including the spare, at least monthly.
