Tires are one of the most things that must be checked periodically and monitor their air pressure at least once a week, especially because they are vulnerable to damage in any of the four seasons of the year, especially the summer due to the intense heat, and with these high temperatures, it should always be ensured that the heat does not cause expulsion Air from inside the tires – which can cause you to lose control of the car, because air is known to contract with cold and expand with heat.
Air pressure varies according to the type of car and according to the manufacturer’s instructions according to the size of the car, rims, etc.
Therefore, we must know when a car tire explodes, in order to avoid these situations as much as possible and reduce the chances of it exploding. First: The air pressure inside a normal car tire ranges between 30 and 35 pounds / square inch, and an increase in air pressure by a few bars may lead to a tire explosion.
Excessive inflation of the tire also spoils the brakes and makes them not work efficiently and thus damage the tire before its life span, and the factors affecting the process of friction with asphalt while driving may be a reason to raise the temperature of the tires, especially in summer.
Tires are designed to withstand different temperatures, whether high or low, wear and crack, but there is definitely a limit to what rubber can withstand. The signs to protect your tire from exploding, and also modern cars give a warning to the car control panel. If you notice any of these signs, park your car until the tires cool down, and then go to inspect it and do the necessary.
If you are driving long distances, the following should be noted:
Are your tires fully inflated – the ideal air pressure for safe driving depends on the type of vehicle you are driving.
The recommended pressure must be specified by the vehicle manufacturer, which is usually indicated on the driver’s door interior and in the vehicle’s user manual.
It should also be noted that the “recommended” quantity should not be confused with the “maximum” quantity that the tire can bear, which is written on the tire itself.
Tire pressure must be checked – measure the air pressure of the tire before setting off with a pressure gauge and check the tire pressure every two hours or every 160 km for added safety.
Replace your worn out tires – worn out tires are the most prone to exploding. You can also consider buying all-season tires or summer tires designed specifically to withstand high temperatures.
Keep your tires clean – add a layer of wax to your tires to keep them from getting stiff.
Stick to your speed limits – the higher the speed, the higher the friction rate and the higher the tire’s temperature, which increases the risk of exploding.
The load of the car must be taken into account – because the greater the load of the car, the greater the weight that the tires bear, and thus the greater the possibility of exploding.
