Top Reasons Your Tyre Goes Flat

Flat tyres are one of the most common reasons for a sudden car breakdown and also causes most inconvenience to any driver while on the road. When such an unfortunate incident presents itself, it’s best to get in touch with skilled technicians in Smart Mechanics for smart recovery service

Common causes of a flat tyre:

  1. Tyre wear and tear

The quality of our tyres degrade with time. When a tyre gets old and you can see the threads in the rubber, the odds that it will go flat are high. Which is why it’s highly imperative to routinely inspect your tyres and get regular maintenance and tyre  rotation done. 

  1. Rough Roads & Sharp Objects

Debris, nails or glass on the road will puncture a tyre fast. Moreover, hitting a pothole at 60 mph can also lead to a flat tyre. You can avoid such punctures by taking care by not driving around such debris and avoid all the debris and holes along the way.

  1. Hot Weather

High temperatures in the summer make for another most common cause of flat tyres. Moreover, it also causes the air in the tyres to expand thereby increasing the internal air pressure. That increased pressure increases the chances of a tyre blowing out completely.
