Keep Your Distance When Towing

When towing items behind a vehicle, it is important to take proper safety precautions. For instance, you never want to tailgate the vehicle in front of yours. This is because you may have to brake hard if that vehicle slows or stops. Braking in anything other than a smooth manner could disturb your load.

It may also make it harder for your tires to support the weight of the trailer without blowing out. To further prevent tire blowout, be sure to drive at or below the posted speed limit for the road. You may also want to consider driving at or below the speed a tire is rated for.

While towing may make it convenient to get heavy objects to their destination, it needs to be done so in a responsible manner. Prior to a towing trip, bring your vehicle to our service center at Simmons Nissan Inc for an inspection.
