Types of Tire Defects

Often a tire’s defects are not noticeable without a thorough inspection. While manufacturers are supposed to catch these issues with their own tests, sometimes defective tires make it to the market and are installed on unsuspecting drivers’ vehicles. The following is a list of possible defects that may affect the performance of your tires:

  • Design defects
  • Manufacturing defects
  • Poor construction
  • Use of substandard materials

These problems in the design or manufacturing of a tire could lead to issues that could damage your vehicle or even cause an accident, putting you and your family in danger. Some common effects of a defective tire include:

  • Tire blowout
  • Tire de-treading
  • Tire shredding
  • Tread separation

If one or more of your tires fails to perform properly on the road, you could be facing costly repairs to fix any damage done to your vehicle. In addition, if the tire defect led to an accident, you may be burdened with medical costs, lost income from time off of work, and other expenses. Our Tennessee tire defect attorneys understand how harmful a tire defect can be and we are committed to helping you recover the financial compensation that you are owed.
