Hundreds of people are seriously injured or killed each year in the United States in accidents caused by tire blowout accidents, tire-tread separations or other types of tire defects. You may remember the Ford/Firestone tire debacle and rollovers. Sudden tire failure is particularly dangerous in vehicles with a high center of gravity such as trucks, sport utility vehicles (SUVs) and 15-Passenger Vans, which are prone to rollover.
Tire tread separation and subsequent blow-out can often be traced to poor bonding or adhesion of the steel belt to the rubber components of the tire during manufacturing. Another little-known cause of failure is tire aging. Tires, like any rubber product, have a limited shelf life. When old tires that have been stored in a warehouse for several years are sold to consumers, catastrophic tire blowouts can be the result. Air, heat and sunlight can cause the rubber in tires to breakdown. Also, improper tire placement, where two new tires are placed on the front of the vehicle, instead of the rear, will cause hydroplaning on a wet road.
