Don't Let Neglected Tires Cause a Blowout

The last thing you want to have happen while driving is to be stranded at the side of the road with a tire that has blown out. But we'd like to remind our Mercedes-Benz of Tacoma customers that there are steps you can take that greatly reduce the risk of having a tire blowout.

Underinflation is one of the leading causes of blown tires, so be sure to check the air pressure level on all four tires, including your spare, at least once a month. Inflate your tires to the pressure level recommended for your specific vehicle. If your car pulls to the right or left, get an alignment check before it causes uneven tread wear on your tires.

Have your tires rotated on a regular basis so they wear evenly. Check daily for any cracks or bulges in the sidewall, or any sharp objects embedded in the tire tread.
