What Causes Tire Blowouts?

Tire blowouts are often attributed to acts of negligence. When the tires are not properly maintained, they become more vulnerable to being damaged by debris and other hazardous road conditions. Some of the factors that lead to a tire blowout are:

  • Excessive use of the brake pads
  • High temperatures on the road while traveling
  • Exceedingly heavy cargo load
  • Failure to maintain proper tire inflation
  • A high number of miles being driven on the same set of tires

The causes of tire blowouts and explosions are well known within the commercial trucking industry. When a tire blowout accident occurs, it can usually be traced to the failure of the trucker and the trucking company to implement proper safety measures. Checking the air pressure and alignment of all the tires should be done on a regular basis. When the trucker detects that something is wrong with the tires, an inspection should be performed so that the tires can be repaired right away.
