We’ve compiled a list on how to reduce and avoid pothole damage and how to take care of any damage that is caused.
Your tires should be inflated at the rating that is recommended by your owner’s vehicle manual. This will ensure that your properly inflated tires are best prepared for those unwanted pavement dips.
Not only should you avoid tailgating the car in front of you, but you should always keep a close eye on what’s happening in front of you. By keeping a distance between yourself and the car in front of you, you can see how their car is responding to the potentially bumpy roads so that you yourself can avoid any harmful potholes.
It’s important to be mindful of how fast you’re driving on broken pavement. One quick burst of speed could lead to a new tire, especially in inclement weather.
