Tire Failure

 

Do not neglect the most important part of your vehicle which is the only point of contact with the ground. A break down along the journey can lead to a lot of frustration, waste of time and effort.41201676-adorable-little-girl-helping-her-father-to-change-a-car-wheel-outdoors-on-beautiful-summer-day

The most common reasons why people are not able to get on their way after a tire failure are:

  1. Spare tire is flat, neglected and forgotten.
  2.  The tools required for a tire change such as jack and wheel nut wrench are not in good working order.

Leaving things to chance and taking things for granted is really not the way to go when it comes to your car tires. Ensuring that the spare tire and the relevant tools or even a puncture repair system are all available and in good working condition is very important before we embark on a journey. Road side assistance is sometimes available but at a price.

We need to ask ourselves if this kind of inconvenience is really necessary. Can it be avoided? A tire puncture sometimes cannot be avoided.But being helpless can be avoided if a little effort is put in to ensure that we are prepared for such unexpected situations.

There is no substitute to regular checking and maintenance of your car tires for optimum performance and safety.

I can assure you that following the guidelines given in this website can, to a great extend, minimize the unexpected heart aches and distress that one may have to go through in situations such as this.

Knowing and taking action is better than leaving things to chance.

Please do not hesitate to leave a comment or a question on this subject. I would be happy to give you a reply promptly.

  4. Hey Nair
    Really enjoyed your page and from a person who works in the car trade you’ve really hit the nail on the head. People all too often forget about the spare tyre presuming it’ll never happen to them. Even some service garages will only check the tyres on the car and not the spare. Looking forward to reading more posts

  5. Hi Nair,

    I can certainly relate to this. Just the other day, I had a punctured tire while on my way back from work, massive traffic and heavy storm.

    I quickly parked at the nearest gas station and someone came to my rescue. Fortunately, my new car of 5 months old has got a jack and wrench in place so we could change to the spare tire on the spot. The entire process only lasted 10 minutes and I managed to drive home safely.

    If it was my old car, I wouldn’t have been so lucky.
