Can I Lemon My Car If It Has Tire Issues?
Yes, you can lemon your car for tire issues. Tires are a major component on a vehicle. A car cannot run on the roads without tires, and all tires need to be safe to be able to safely maneuver and drive a vehicle. If a tire has defects and blows out on the roads, it will cause instability in the driver’s ability to safely drive the car.
Knowing What to Do Correctly If Your Tires Blowout on the Roads Could Save Your Life!
Most people have experienced a low tire, or even had a flat tire. But many people have never experienced a tire blowout on the roads while driving. In order to understand what to do if your tire ever blows out on the roads, we need to put on our Physics Professor hat for a few minutes here.
If your tire blows out on the road, there are several serious physical characteristics that are working together, and will make driving your vehicle extremely unsafe in those first few moments. Let’s imagine you are driving on the highway, and your tire blows out. It may have blown out because of a tire defect, which may have had the tire slowly lose pressure, or may have burst the tire altogether.
In the event of a tire blowout, your tire pressure dips extremely fast, usually making a loud noise. You might hear a “bang” or a popping noise when the tire actually blows out while driving on the highway. Either way, what happens next is of critical importance to keep you alive and the other drivers safe on the roads during a tire blowout.
Tire Blowouts Are Deadly, Stay Alive by Staying Calm and Do Not Hit the Brakes!
If your tire blows out because of a tire defect, you can keep control of your vehicle. But you may need to act counter intuitively to keep your car in the safe zones during a tire collapse. The physics of a tire blowout are that the tire loses pressure immediately, and the rim of the wheel will then be in immediate contact with the ground. The car is still moving at that point, and the friction of the ground will cause the car to vibrate suddenly. You’ll feel a rapid vibration or bumpy feeling to the wheels, but that is not the end of it.
Because only one tire blew out, now the vehicle is seriously off balance. The physical forces of time and distance will start to force the moving car to swerve in a direction towards the blown-out tire. At this moment, the car will naturally start to swerve, as it is off balance.
What you need to do during a tire blowout, is to:
- Do not apply the brakes.
- Do not suddenly release your foot from the gas pedal.
During a tire blowout, you need to resist the urge to apply the brakes, and slowly release your foot from the gas pedal. This will allow the car to stabilize itself slowly and to start to slow down in the same overall condition and upright position that it is currently traveling in at that moment.
If you put your foot on the brakes, and suddenly lift your foot off of the accelerator, you could actually destabilize the vehicle to the extent, that it will flip the car upside down, and the car may hit a guardrail, go into on coming traffic, or careen down a hill at the same high rate of speed. For this reason, allowing the car to slow down and gently steering off onto the side of the road safely, is the best course of action during a tire blowout situation on the roads.
