1. Tire Tread Separation The tire tread enables the vehicle to grip the road securely, preventing it from slipping or sliding while driving in bad weather like rain or on ice. However, sometimes, due to design or manufacturing defects, tires can undergo a tread separation where the tread along with one or both steel belts comes off the rest of the tire. This tire tread separation can cause the vehicle to go out of control, usually ending in a rollover accident that can cause serious injuries to the driver and passengers of the vehicle.

Get the Best Results for your Tire Tread Separation Lawsuit Our competent, caring attorneys know that there are several reasons for tire tread separations. These include: Poorly placed or badly manufactured belt wedges: If the tire has been poorly manufactured, cracks can grow along the belt edge and develop into a tread/belt separation. These separations can cause the tread and top belt to detach from the tire. Belt wedges are placed by the manufacturer to prevent the growth of these cracks at the belt edges. Inadequate or lack of Nylon Overlay: As tire rotates, the belts move. The movement of the belts causes cracks to grow at the belt edges, which can lead to a tread/belt separation. A nylon overlay is placed over the belts to limit the movement of the belts while the tire rotates. Not all tire manufacturers implement the nylon overlay, thereby reducing the tire’s resistance to edge separation. Improper belt widths: The area of greatest stress in a tire is at the belt edges. If a tire has improper belt widths, the stress at the belt edges increases and can result in a tread/belt separation.
2. Using old, ‘dry’ rubber stock: Use of old, “dry” rubber stock reduces the adhesion of the tire making the tire more susceptible to a tread/belt separation. Trapped air, moisture or foreign materials cured into the tire: Trapped air, moisture and foreign materials in a tire prevent proper adhesion during the curing process. As a result, a tire with trapped air, moisture or foreign materials is more likely to experience a tread/belt separation. Looking for the Top Tire Tread Separation Lawyers?
