The most common reasons why people are not able to get on their way after a tire failure are:
- Spare tire is flat, neglected and forgotten.
- 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.
