Tips to stop a car after tire explosion at high speed

By December 11, 2020No Comments
  • When a tire explodes try to stay as calm as possible and hold the steering wheel firmly with both hands.
  • It’s most important to keep your foot off the brakes and don’t push it at all. Don’t even look at the brake pedal, don’t even think about it.
  • Stay on your path and try not to change it or get out of anyone’s way, stay on a path.
  • If your car has a manual transmission, gradually change to a lower BUT ONLY do so if you feel that the car is completely under control. If your car has an automatic transmission, stay in the Drive (D) gear DO NOT change.
  • Don’t use brakes, the drag from the exploded tire will slow you down.
  • When speed drops to 50 km/h, you can gently press the brakes until the car stops
