When is a tire recall necessary?

A tire recall is necessary when it fails to comply with the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards, and when the tires have a design or manufacture defect that places the driver in danger. The Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards establish minimum performance requirements for the components of a vehicle that have the greatest impact on its safe operation.

A safety-related defect is one that presents a risk to the safety of the vehicle, and may be present in a group of vehicles that have the same design or manufacture. When a tire blows out or there is tread separation while the motorist is driving at a rate appropriate for the highway, the driver and all passengers are in great peril of suffering injury or death. However, the tire manufacturer is still liable for damages to the injured victims when a tire model is recalled.
