Top Signs of Defective Tires
Recognizing the signs of defective tires may help prevent tire failure and serious car accidents. It also may help you understand what led to your auto accident and injuries. If you believe a tire defect was responsible for your crash, talk to an attorney about the details of your accident.
These are just a few of the more common signs of defective tires. It is critical to save all tires and components after a tire blowout accident. These products are important evidence in any potential claim related to defective tires. Our personal injury lawyers can talk to you about other steps you can take to preserve the integrity of your claim.
The following are some of the top factors related to cases of tire blowout:
- Tire sidewall failure – A defect in the design or manufacturing process can lead to deterioration of the tire’s sidewalls. This can lead to an unexpected collapse and blowout. Tire sidewall failure also may be attributed to the use of defective or insufficient materials during production.
- Tire bead failure – A tire bead is responsible for maintaining the integrity of the tire. If this inner circle is not properly reinforced, the tire may lose pressure and be subject to tire blowouts.
- Used tires, Aging Tires– Retailers have an obligation to inform consumers of a tire’s age and whether the tire has been repaired at any point. Used tires must meet the same minimum safety standards established for new tires.
- Tire markings – Tire markings help indicate whether your tires were part of a national tire recall. Your lawyer can help determine if your tires were subject to tire recalls or past legal action, such as injury claims and lawsuits.
- Tread – Tires that show premature tread wear may indicate manufacturer liability. These products are subject to tire failure and may be a contributing factor in a tire blowout accident.
- Tire explosion – Defects in multi-piece tire rims can lead to rim explosion and loss of vehicle control.
- Retreaded Tires – Used commonly on large trucks or large fleets of automobiles getting heavy use.
- Ozone Cracking
