Drive Slow to Avoid Tire Blowouts

If you want to prevent a tire from blowing out, it is important to drive at an appropriate speed. Most tires are rated to be driven safely up to a certain speed such as 70 or 80 miles per hour. By driving faster than these limits, you could be creating forces that the tire cannot handle.

You should refrain from driving above a tire's speed rating regardless of what the speed limit is on a road. For example, if the speed limit for your tire is 70 miles per hour, you should refrain from driving 80 miles per hour just because that is the speed limit for a given road.

In the event that you experience a flat or damaged tire, bring your vehicle to our Ford parts and repair shop for service right away. You can also bring your vehicle here for any other service that it may need.
