Tire Tread Separation Lawyers
Unfortunately, tires can and do sit on store shelves for years and years yet are still ultimately sold to the consumer as new. There are no age restrictions on tires for sale in the United States. A retailer can sell a ten year old tire as a new tire. In truth, tires have a useful life of no more than six years. Never buy a tire that is more than four years old!
We and our co-counsel have proven that tire manufacturers and automobile manufacturers have known of the dangers of aged tires since the 60's. They have done nothing to warn consumers of the dangers of an aged tire or to warn them not to buy a tire beyond its expiration date.
You can check the tire’s age by checking the identification number on the side wall that begins with the letters DOT. The last four digits represent the week and year the tire was manufactured.

The most common tire defect cases are bead failures, hang-up or tire mismatch problems. The bead is the tire portion which comes into contact with the wheel. Bead failure occurs at the splice of the bead bundle. There is a separation of the bead, as a result. Most bead failures are caused by small tires that are stored in the storage department or trunk.
Tread and belt separations occur when a steel belted radial tire loses its tread and its steel belts, causing a loss of control resulting in a roll-over or serious crash. What happens is that the top steel belt usually comes off after the tread is lost. This is usually accompanied by a sudden loud noise and vibration. In an automobile, these rear tire blowouts are very difficult to control. They frequently cause rollovers, especially in vans and SUV’s. Often, the car/truck is pulled to the blown tire side, and, when the driver attempts to correct, he loses control and the vehicle leaves the road.
Most of the time, tire and belt separation are caused by certain components used in the manufacturing of the tire, including weak rubber compounds, poor rubber, or rust. When the steel belt edges become weak, the weakness or loosening proceeds to the center of the tire, ultimately leading to the tread becoming loose as it peels off the tire.
