Why do Yokohama tires fail? It could be due to one or more manufacturing or environmental factors, which can lead to dangerous accidents involving blowouts, tire tread separations and other defects. The following represent some of the most common reasons behind why defective Yokohama tires might eventually lead to serious injuries:

  • Factory damage
  • Overpatching
  • Poor sizing, particularly in relation to the height of the vehicle
  • Storage under inadequate conditions
  • Not replacing spare tires
  • Retailers selling used or aged tires as “new”

If you or a loved one have been injured because of dangerous or defective Yokohama tires, a personal injury attorney can help guide you through the steps involved in investigation and litigation. They are available to make sure the truly liable party is determined and held accountable for their negligence, and provide the necessary support to ensure a fair settlement.In addition, savvy consumers need to know how to avoid purchasing a bad Yokohama. Learn more.

Selling Aged Yokohama Tires as New

Be wary when buying new Yokohama tires. The truth is, even some of the nation’s most prominent retailers, such as Pep Boys and Wal-Mart, can mislabel old tires as “new.” A tire may be unused, but that doesn’t inherently make it safe – especially if it’s been stored under poorly-monitored conditions. This failure to provide consumers with a quality tire that they can trust ups their risk of suffering the following:

  • Rollovers
  • Tread separations
  • Inadequate adhesion
  • Dry rot
  • Blowouts
