Excessive Tire Wear

In order to ensure your safety while driving, it is important to have quality tires manufactured by a reliable company. However, even top quality tires have a limited life-span. Tires are built to endure a great amount of wear on the road, but at a certain point they should be changed and replaced by newer tires. Unfortunately, it is not always clear when this point is, and some tires wear out long before they are expected to. When excessive wear happens to a tire, one of the most common results is tire tread separation and blowouts. For passengers of SUVs and other top heavy vehicles, a tire blowout is often a precursor to a rollover accident.

If you or someone you love was involved in a rollover accident caused by a tire blowout, you may be entitled to financial compensation from the manufacturer.

Causes of Wear

Tires come with a certain mileage before they are in need of a change. After a length of time on the road, tires can begin to lose traction and go through tread separation. The biggest contributors to wear include:

  • Potholes
  • Driving through uneven roads, such as alleyways and unpaved areas
  • Glass and other objects on the road
  • General day to day stress on the tire
  • Uneven pavement

Especially in vehicles that are prone to rollovers, changing tires once they become worn should be a top priority.
