When you are driving a vehicle you know you are responsible for the care of it. Most people rely heavily on their car or truck to make their life easier. It is a way to get to where you need to go without taking too much time. It also offers independence to a person that has a vehicle. Most vehicles will require work that has to be done while you have them. Even the nicest of cars need to have things done or they will start to break down. One is that you need to keep gas in the car to ensure that it can run. You also know that you need to have your cars oiled changed and other fluids topped off on a regular basis. The work that goes into actually caring for a car can be done as long as you have a plan. You want to make sure you are prepared for a problem that might arise while you are out driving around. The tires on your car can over time wear out and you want to be prepared that they can become damaged. Roadrunner Roadside Assistance lists some of the most common causes of tire damage.

Tire Blowout

One of the problems you might come across when it comes to tire damage is when you have a blowout. This is when you are driving down the street and your tire gives out and the tread can separate from the rest of the tire. This can be a very scary moment because it often happens when you are driving fast. The blow out can cause you to lose control of the car or truck so you want to make sure you keep your cool. Carefully pull your car off the side of the road and call for roadside assistance. You can have them come out and make sure that your spare has been put on safely so that you can get back on the road. You will need to make sure that your tire is replaced because it cannot be repaired.

Flat Tire

The other problem you will likely have happen to you at some point in your life is a flat. OF course we all know about flat tires and what that means. The flat can come from a variety of problems. Most of the time you have driven over a nail or screw that has penetrated the tread. This will then lead to air leaking from the tire. The great thing is that you can have your spare put on then take the other tire to a shop where they can patch or plug the hole. The tire usually can be placed back on the car.

Tire Damage from Car Accident

There are some people that might make a mistake when driving and happen to hit a curb or other hard object. When this happens the tire can be pulled away from the wheel and the air can leak out. This is an accident and as along as the tire is not damaged it can be taken to be filled back up and placed back on the car.
