Tires do much more than allow cars to make contact with the road. They also support the vehicle, provide traction, and allow drivers to maintain control over their automobiles. Because of the importance of car tires, they must be carefully maintained by drivers and mechanics.

Types of Tire Defects
Tire defects refer to any abnormality or fault in a tire that occurs as a result of faulty design or improper manufacturing procedures. Some of these incidents are isolated, while others are more widespread. Regardless, a faulty tire may put drivers and their passengers at risk for serious accidents and injuries.
Common tire defects include:
- Tread separation
- Weak rubber composite
- Weak support cables
- Side wall deformations
These defects may make a tire more prone to a blowout. When a tire blows out, drivers may lose control of their vehicles, which may result in serious collisions. In these cases, individuals may suffer severe injuries, some of which may even be fatal.
Tire defects may be the liability of the tire’s manufacturer, meaning that victims of accidents resulting from defective tires may be entitled to financial compensation. Contact the Lake Geneva auto defects attorneys of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ®, today at 800-242-2874 to learn more.
