Types of Tire Defects & Why They Occur

Certain design flaws can result in tire defects. A tire blowout, or a sudden loss of air pressure, is a very common defect caused by insufficient testing, inadequate inspections, and low-quality materials. Since tire blowouts typically happen when a car is in motion, many drivers lose control. This can lead to serious injury or death. 

Consider other common types of tire defects:

  • Tread and belt separation: This defect occurs when the tread separates from the body of the tire. Though hot weather and high speeds can compromise the rubber-to-steel adhesive, faulty design is often to blame. 
  • Sidewall failures: Though rare, sidewall failures do happen because of compromised rubber compounds, an inadequate speed rating, and a broken connection between the belt ply and the tread. When this occurs, the outer wall of the tire splits. 
  • Bead failures: The tire bead is a section of the tire that sits on the wheel. Bead failure can cause the tire to rapidly deflate and explode. Drivers struggle to maintain control when this happens.  
  • Multi-piece wheel/rim failures: Split rim or multi-piece wheels can violently separate, releasing high-pressure air and pieces of metal. This product defect is so dangerous that the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is attempting to ban it.

If you have suffered injuries because of a faulty tire, you may be entitled to compensation for the damages. Contact our Virginia defective tire attorneys to learn more. 

Even if you believe your accident was caused by a defective tire, you must have evidence. Without evidence, the tire manufacturer’s big-time legal team will deny negligence, blaming the accident on expected wear and tear or consumer error. That’s why you need the Virginia tire defect lawyers with Breit Biniazan.

Our firm is dedicated to building a strong case. We’ll conduct extensive research, partner with experienced investigators, and even enlist the expertise of accident reconstruction professionals. In short, we’ll fight fiercely for justice.
