Nancy explains why you should not be driving with a bubble in your tire.
Have you suddenly noticed a bubble in your tire, oops? Or you’re wondering, is it safe to drive with that bubble in your tire?
Hi, I’m Nancy at Kneble’s Auto Service Center. Definitely not. It is not safe. A bubble in the side of your tire usually comes from hitting a pothole or hitting a curb. Oops. This causes the integrity of the tire to be compromised and the sidewall is weakened. Therefore, air leaks into the inside of the tire creating that bubble.
A bubble and your tire are not safe to drive on because you’re at risk of that tire exploding while you’re driving. A bubble in the sidewall of the tire is not repairable. Your only option is purchasing a new tire.
