Everyone knows how annoying a flat tire can be. You have to pull over and swap your tire for that small spare tire you keep in the trunk. The whole process is frustrating and time consuming especially if you have no idea what you are doing, in which case you might have to call for a service truck. These kind of flats, though annoying are usually caused by an outside source (e.g running over a nail or sharp object) and aren’t really that concerning. The real danger are tire blowouts. This is when your tire is under inflated or over inflated. The stress on the tire can cause it to literally blow up throwing the entire car into disarray.
