Tire Failures

Our Tire Defect Practice

Few law firms can rival the results achieved by the attorneys of Greene Broillet & Wheeler, LLP, in tire defect litigation. To learn more about defective tires and how we hold tire makers accountable for their negligence, please visit the following pages:

  • Tire anatomy: Knowing the parts of a tire helps you better understand how and where defects can occur.
  • Tire tread separation: Defective tire design and manufacturing processes can cause the tread and top belt to separate from the body of the tire, sometimes with lethal results.
  • Inflation and tread separation: Tire makers often blame tread separation on low inflation when, in fact, their own design or manufacturing errors are at fault.
  • Aged tires: Tires that look brand new can pose significant safety hazards. Learn how the American tire industry denied what tire makers around the world had known for years: old tires are dangerous tires.
  • Valve stem defects: Defective valve stems can leak air, which can impair handling and lead to accidents and injuries.
  • Load-range E tires: Our law firm's results led the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to investigate the connection between Goodyear load-range E tires and 40 accidents that caused 150 fatalities.
  • Tire safety tips: Learn how to take care of your tires and protect your safety.
  • How to read your tires: Learn how to decode the markings on your tires' sidewalls. You may be surprised at what you find.
  • Problem tires/recalls: Are you driving on defective tires or tires that are being investigated for potential defects?
