Managing, recognising and preventing a punctured car tyre

You may want to know a few reasons as to why your tyre punctured in the first place. There are several ways in which your tyres can pop - you may have that incorrect tyre pressure, your vehicle may have been overloaded, your tyres may simply have worn out, there may be an unnoticed slow puncture or you may have just simply driven over a pothole.

So how do you prevent your car tyre from puncturing?

You should regularly check your tyre pressure and ensure they aren’t underinflated, ideally you should be inspect your tyres monthly including checking for any cuts or bulges on your tyres. Attempt to avoid using old tyres as the rubber deteriorates over time and can become weak. Try to avoid driving in areas where punctures are likely to happen, if you know there’s a road with several pot holes, avoid it. You can also protect your tyres with tyre sealant and line your tyres with puncture-resistant strips to lower the chances of your tyres popping.
