Blowouts cases

Blowouts cases

Overloading

The most common cause of tyre blowout is overloading vehicle, especially if the tyres are underinflated. Overloading of a car causes the internal parts of the tyre to stretch beyond their limits and eventually failing to carry the load and burst.

Puncture

A tyre blowout is a result of the disintegration of the tyre while travelling at speed. It can be caused by driving over a sharp object, glass, or past accident debris. The object can penetrate the tyre and rapidly deflate it causing the car to suddenly swerve in the direction of the punctured tyre.

Potholes and kerbs

Another cause of blowouts, especially with ultra-low profile rubber, is driving over a pothole or a kerb. The impact can pinch the internal parts of the tyre and if the hit is hard enough, cut through fabric and rubber, disintegrating completely the tyre.
