With population density forcing more and more people into city life, car manufacturers seek niches in the market that appeal to those who drive in the city. City streets carry more traffic than town streets. The streets in established cities often require smaller, more maneuverable vehicles for the quick trip across a district.

Volvo entered this growing niche market with the compact XC40 SUV. To handle the ins and outs of city driving, Volvo included stiffer springs in the Momentum.

Important Helpful Tips for Avoiding a Tire Blowout

The closer that you are paying attention to the treads of the car tires, the less likely they will be the cause of a tire blowout. Keep a close eye for either of these potential tire issues.

It might not appear in the moment that hitting that huge pothole caused any damage to your vehicle, but it could have knocked the front of the car out of alignment.

Compare Spare Tire Sizes

Your passenger car may be equipped with either a compact temporary or a full-size spare tire. Either choice will serve to get you off the road in the event of a flat and to a service station for repair. An SUV or pickup truck, however, must have a full-size spare. The compact isn’t large enough to handle the extra weight.

A compact spare has limited capability because of its small size and rigid tread. If you remember to drive it at reduced speeds and just until you can get your regular tire repaired, you’ll be fine.
