What should I do if my tires are defective?

If you discover that your tires are defective, it is likely that the tire has a design or manufacture defect. Auto manufacturers have a duty to supply you with a product that is reasonably fit for the purpose for which it was designed.

Therefore, if you were injured as a result of the defect, you may be able to file a claim against the manufacturer of the tire. If the vehicle was used when you made the purchase, you may also have a claim against the car lot where you bought it. The workers at the lot may be liable for causing the defect or failing to detect it.
