At Van Horn Alfa Romeo of Davenport, our auto experts believe in the value of shared knowledge, and one topic that we are passionate about is how to avoid flat tires. Flat tires appear to come out of nowhere, but in truth, flat tires are often caused by several factors that can be avoided.

The first on this list is regular tire maintenance. Over time, your tires wear down, and as a result, will be more susceptible to blowing out. On average, tires last anywhere between three to four years, however, this can change depending on road conditions and other mechanical factors. By keeping up with regular rotations that better distribute wear and swapping out your tires when they’re worn, you can avoid finding yourself stranded on the side of the road with a flat.

Another way to avoid a flat tire is to be conscious of road conditions. Things like potholes, dips, and the occasional nail can lead to a blowout, and by being aware, you can avoid these potentially disastrous obstacles. At the same time, it is important to be aware of air pressure levels. An overinflated or underinflated tire is more likely to burst than a tire that is already at optimal air pressure levels.

If you have any questions regarding tire maintenance or auto servicing in general, the team of skilled technicians at our Alfa Romeo service center is here to fulfill your every mechanical need. At Van Horn Alfa Romeo of Davenport, you can expect only the best in customer service.
