Reacting to the surprise of the loud noise and a jerk of the steering wheel, many drivers' first reactions are to lift off of the accelerator, hit the brakes and quickly steer the vehicle to the side of the road. Unfortunately these typical reactions have been shown to be dangerous, and may make it more difficult for the driver to maintain control.

If you experience a blowout, it doesn't make any difference if you are driving a sports car, sporty coupe or sport utility vehicle; the same procedures are appropriate. The driver should step on the accelerator for an instant to preserve vehicle momentum (or at least maintain constant accelerator pedal pressure), and offset the pulling caused by the blown tire by gently counter steering to keep the vehicle in its lane. Once the vehicle has stabilized, the driver can gently slow down and begin to carefully pull over to the side of the road.

Yes steering tire blowouts are the worst, wouldn't have been as bad if it was the rear axle, especially if it had duals.

Sure #5, cause when I'm travelling down the road @ 75mph and my tire literally explodes from the rim.

Cool thoughts and a collected mind are my first reaction.

Are we sure that is just a tire blowing? Looks like the engine went boom.
