SENTEVCED TO BEATH Whatare LIFEGUARDS- How Do They Work? A blowout occurs in a tire when the casing fails due to sudden frsciure, heat fatigue, or being too old and worn. Instantly the single air chamber of a conventional inner tube collapses the tire flattens the car usually goes out of control and you are in danger. BUT with LifeGuards you have two air chambers! If a blowout occurs the outer chamber collapses, the inner 2-ply reserve tire (the LifeGuard) remains in- flated long enough to enable you to bring your car to a safe, smooth stop.
