One of the topics we often discuss with our customers is flat tires and what you can do to avoid them entirely. Chances are your car’s tires undergo quite a beating. By maintaining them, and keeping careful watch of the road, you can avoid finding yourself stuck on the side of the road with a flat.

Tire Maintenance

One of the most effective ways to avoid a flat tire is by keeping up on your car’s tire maintenance. This means keeping a careful watch on factors like tread depth and air pressure. Over-inflated and under-inflated tires run a higher risk of blowing out. Alternatively, tires with low tread depths are typically more worn, which can make a flat more likely.

Be Aware

Keep an eye on the road. There are some obstacles that even a brand new tire can be blown out from such as nails and other particularly sharp objects. Although you won’t be able to spot nails on the road, it’s a good idea to avoid construction areas and other roadways that appear to have a lot of debris. Another helpful tip is to keep an eye on the recommended load of your tire. Each tire can only sustain a certain amount of weight, and by crossing that limit, you can run the risk of popping a flat.

Of course, if you have any questions regarding flat tires, tire maintenance, or auto service in general, the team of auto technicians in our FIAT parts and service department is here for you. At FIAT of Fresno, we pride ourselves on customer satisfaction, no matter your particular automotive needs.
