Don't let a failed tire spoil your Valentine's plans. The tire experts at Twin Tire will make sure your tires are in top condition for romantic outings.
We've all had this experience: You've made plans to celebrate a special occasion, like Valentine's Day. But rather than have the evening go according to plan, something horrible happens. Your car doesn't start. Or a tire goes flat. Or a tire even blows out.
Tires can fail for many reasons, according to the Tire Industry Association. Among those a re road hazards and running over debris. Another culprit is heat - the friction caused by the simple act of driving on under-inflated tires.
"If the heat is allowed to build up over a long enough time, the bonds between the plies and rubber components start to break down," the association says. "Eventually the stress becomes too great and the tire experiences what most people call a 'blow out.'"
The association adds, "The over-flexing that results from under-inflation allows incredible amounts of heat to build up in the tire until it becomes too much for the components to stay together. Regular air pressure maintenance is the best insurance to prevent a 'blow out' so it should be checked at least once a month as well as before a long trip."
