Don't make the mistake of ignoring problems with your tires. Maybe you think all those vibrations are fine, but issues with the wheels, tires, and struts could be the cause. A trained mechanic can likely figure out the reason for the mysterious vibrations. A car's owner can also check for some obvious signs the vehicle's tires are in bad shape.

Checking tread depth should be something all owners should do regularly. Use a penny to see how deep Lincoln's dead goes into the treads. If you see the top of Lincoln's head, the less depth there is. Such a tire won't have reliable traction.

Tires can also suffer dry rot from weather, age, and use. A dry-rotted tire with cracked sidewalls is likely to blow out. And also look for bulges and bumps, as they indicate weak tire and potential blowout.
