What are the primary reasons for tyre a blast?
Have you ever experienced a tyres blast on a City/Highway? 

 

Nothing is scarier than a tyre burst where your vehicle gets difficult to control as it happens due to sudden loss of air pressure without any indication. This sudden loss of air from the tyre makes it very difficult to drive on the road.

There is nothing more critical to safe driving than healthy tyres.

 

These tyre bursts usually happen due to bulging out because of heavy load on the tyre.

One should check the maximum limit that the tyres can endure and then load the vehicle accordingly. Always check the pressure when the tyres are cold in condition.

Potholes or hitting kerbs are also few other reasons as they can immediately cause a tyre blowout.

If your tyres are over 5 years / 40,000 kms old, you should consider replacing them. The older & more worn-out that your tyre is, the higher the chance of burst.

It is recommended to take a break after every 2 to 3 hours of driving. This refreshment stop will not only do good to the driver, but also allows the tyres, brakes, clutch. to cool down. Give your car & tyres a visual check during these breaks.

 

You have less than 1 second to take a decision between life and death during this situation of a tyre burst. At this instance, You are naturally wired to take the wrong decision i.e. you will step on the brake.

During this circumstances, accelerating is the only safe decision where you've to do so within one second. Whether you are driving a Car, Bus, truck or a two wheeler.

I didn't experienced but saw it live, while returning from kanyakumari having a tea break on NH, saw a Isuzu old type vehicle carrying lot of root type food don't even know those saw first time, saw a sudden sharp steering towards right and flipped the vehicle, God's grace no death, passengere survived with very Minor injuries but driver strucked up in his door, very bad situation, God has given me little brain to me and I successfully bought him out mean while my frnd called the ambulance, he went to hospital and had a leg  and shoulder fracture.

 

Maintaining the air in the tyres is the only way u can restrict the tyres burst, and while it happened we have to take decision as mentioned above and we don't think of it and apply both. U want to be good in such situations play video games then ur guessing will be good but should not be addicted.

I have seen a tyre burst incident recently, it was a scary experience. 

A fully loaded WagonR, went off the road and landed side ways. 

There were six people in the car, all of them walked away with minor bruises and scratches. 

 

They jumped the divider and landed in the farm on the opposite lane.

Speeds are around 80kmph but it was very dramatic. 

 

Couldn't click any pictures, I was pretty shaken.

Good to see that you took the initiative to help.

This is the biggest problem. 

it happens in a second. 

 

I was behind him, as soon as I saw his car loosing control, I slammed on brakes. 

I was lucky that i don't have any tailgater. 

 

Anyone installed aftermarket TPMS? Is it worth?

Installing a TPMS system on a car that doesn’t have one? Will it be accurate enough to give the right results that we can we trust it blindly? I think it would still be questionable.. Not that all the fillers at the fuel stations read the same in terms of accuracy .. Lol.. But, I believe that correct tire inflation is essential to a car’s operation and proper maintenance. I check my tires every time before I get into my car and get it filled or checked every time I fuel up.

What are some healthy habits for proper tyre maintenance?

you need to think instantly and need to gradually slow down your vehicle. 

 

I don't think so @Sridhar Tandra. Revving the wheel further with higher acceleration and holding the steering wheel firmly. By accelerating the tyre releases huge amount of pressure which follows enough magnitude of force to destabilize the car. I think this should be a right solution during this instance.. Never use a brake which one obviously tends too.. A slight touch on the brake pedal during this situation can cause disaster.

New trends evolving in Hyderabad leads to this.....explanation..... if you go for filling air near the petrol station eg. i did at narayana guda indian oil petrol bunk. The puncture fellow whos officially not from indian oil petrol pump, but work for them fill air and the moment all tyres filled with required amount, he say sir one side of tyres pin is not good its leaking air, he will confidently says and convince u to change, the moment u agreed gone Rs 80 for each pin he will charge, and when i see the original pin its bend and you will satisfies it, when i checked with VW workshop guys they straight away says it happens very very rarely on old models...never get it done again, bring it to the workshop we do it for free.

      Hyderabad to Hamsaladeevi Beach - A hidden Paradise
       
      After a long wait for the December trip, we kick started our vacation to the most beautiful Hamsaladeevi beach located in the Krishna district, Andhra Pradesh.
       
      Usually many of them skip this place due to lack of accommodation, but you will find a decent stay in Vijayawada which is around 80 kms approximately from Hamsaladeevi. It is definitely worth travelling so far to see the beauty of this Sagara Sangamam, where river Krishna meets the Bay of Bengal.
       
      We started at an early hour from Hyderabad and reached Vijayawada by 10 AM and checked into the OYO hotel. There are no food joints available at Hamsaladeevi beach so we packed the lunch from the hotel and headed out. Vijayawada to Hamsaladeevi drive took us 3 hours with some breaks.
       
      Hamsaladeevi village is 24 kms away from Avanigadda and we reached Hamsaladeevi by 3 PM. After a long drive from Hyderabad, there was an adrenaline rush gushing out to see this most beautiful place and couldn't wait to snap the sandy beach and the 'river-beach' meeting point. This point is 2 km away from the beach (From Hamsaladeevi village, beach is 4 kms) and we drove our car on the beach side shore to the port to see the confluence.

       
      Distance : 376 km
      Ride: Honda City
      Fuel : Petrol
      Mileage : 15 kmpl
      Hotel : OYO rooms (2000/- per night)
       
      Best Route 2016
      Hyderabad --> Suryapet --> Vijayawada -->Pedapulipaka --> Madduru --> Thotlavalluru --> Nimmagadda --> Avanigadda --> Nagayalanka --> Chodavaram --> Hamsaladeevi Beach
       
      Note: Don't take any diversions from the mentioned route else you might end up between bad conditioned roads and longer distances as you pass
