Unsafe Tires

An unsafe tire is one that has been improperly manufactured, mounted, inflated, or repaired. Defective tires may look normal and safe to average consumer, when in fact they are susceptible to detreading, delaminating, pressure loss, and blowouts. Tire manufacturers have an obligation to carefully assemble and thoroughly inspect each tire for every potential defect, yet they sometimes fail to uphold this responsibility to consumers. Recently, a foreign tire manufacturer issued a recall of 270,000 tires made without sufficient “gum strips,” making them prone to tread separation. 50,000 of these dangerous tires were distributed in Texas.

Tire manufacturer negligence has serious consequences, including car accidents, devastating injury, and death. Unsafe and defective tires cause thousands of car accidents each year. These accidents are not the fault of the driver, passengers, or car owner, yet too often the victims pay the price. If you have been injured in an accident that was caused by an unsafe tire, contact a defective product attorney immediately to seek justice and compensation for your injuries or loss.

Types of Defective Tires

Tires may be defective for multiple reasons, which are not always the fault of the tire manufacturer. A major cause of unsafe tires is improper tire repair. “Plug only” and “patch only” are popular methods of professional tire repair, largely because they are relatively quick and inexpensive to perform. Yet there is clear evidence that these methods are insufficient and lead to blowouts and accidents after the repair. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has spoken out against these repairs.

In Texas, legislation is being passed that bans the sale of unsafe used tires, a widespread problem among tire dealers who do not have the training to recognize a defective tire that comes through their shop.

Other reasons for tire-related accidents and injuries include:

  • Unsafe tire inflation
  • Improper patching or sealing
  • “Plug only” or “patch only” tire repair methods
  • Tire tread separation
  • Tire glue adhesion failure
  • Impurities in the tire materials
  • Tire delamination
  • Unsafe used tires

Unsafe and Defective Tire Claims

If you are involved in an accident caused by unsafe tires, it is important to preserve the tires and vehicle as evidence in a future claim. Do not let the car and tires be scrapped or destroyed. Tire manufacturers and dealers are experienced in hiding any careless practices, inspection failures, and the age and wear of a tire. Their insurance companies will also work hard to remove blame from the company or manufacturer. You will need an experience defective tire attorney to fight for your right to safety as a consumer, and seek the compensation you deserve.
