What Causes Tires To Fail?
When defective tires fail and cause accidents and injuries, it is often the result of one or more oversights on the part of the manufacturer or the mechanics involved in the installation process. The fault may also lie with the retailer who originally sold an old tire as new. Below is a list of different tire failures along with the accidents that can result if your tires are not properly maintained:
- Tire failure and blowout
- Old tires being sold as new
- Putting the wrong size tires on your vehicle
- Sidewall tire failure
- Tire bead explosions
- Tire damage from impacts
- Tire tread separation
- Vehicle rollovers
- Defective tire treads
In the event an accident occurs because of faulty tires, you should consult a personal injury attorney with experience in these matters. However, there are ways to try and spot potentially dangerous tires. Read about them here.
