#1: Invest in quality tires.
#2: Sign up to get recall alerts.
#3: Do a quality check on your tires regularly.
#4: Keep them inflated to the right PSI.
When your tires are underinflated, they have more surface area in contact with the road. This leads to more heat and more friction, which ups the likelihood that a flat tire will occur. Make sure your tires are always inflated to the right PSI - it can be found in your owner's manual, and our Toyota of N Charlotte techs can also help you get your tires to where they should be.
#5: Don't go over the maximum load rating.
Your tires do have a max when it comes to performance; it's called the maximum load rating, and it can be found on the sidewall of the tire. Don't overload your tires by exceeding this number, as you'll be extremely more likely to get a flat.
#6: Be mindful of where you drive.
Construction sites are hotbeds for flat tires - they're full of nails, screws, shards of glass, and metal that can all damage your tires. Potholes are also another easy way to damage your car's tires and end up with a flat.
#7: Don't use your spare tire as a regular tire.
