Blowouts, Defective Rims and Tread Separations Can All Lead to Car Accidents
For most drivers, flat tires are annoying. But a tire blowout or tread separation that occurs while driving 70-miles-per hour on a crowded highway is terrifying. And even the most safety conscious car owner who performs regular vehicle maintenance can’t prevent a blowout if the manufacturer defectively designs or makes a tire.
Tire defects, tread separations and blowouts are also a leading cause of fatal rollover accidents or permanent injuries. Accidents involving worn or defective tires often fall into one of four categories:
- Tire aging
- Tread separation
- Tire blowout
- Defective rims
