Tires can become damaged without the driver’s knowledge. Most common damages are punctures, cuts, impacts, cracks, bulges and irregular wear.
If you do discover or suspect damage, have the tire inspected without delay by a tire service professional.
If you have to drive over an obstacle (e.g. curbstone), approach it slowly – as close to the perpendicular as possible. Check your tires regularly for exterior damage such as cuts, cracks or bulges.
