Tire blowouts can lead to loss of control of a vehicle, resulting in serious injuries
Tire failures, blowouts and detreads are foreseeable and preventable events. Manufacturers know that tire treads will wear with proper use and at some point fail if not serviced properly and replaced after their intended period of use has expired.
Tire valve stem recall
Tech International recently (May 13, 2008) recalled certain replacement snap-in tire valve stems, model no. Tr413, manufactured between July and November 2006. The rubber portion of the valve stem may crack causing loss of tire pressure.
Continuing to drive on under-inflated tires could damage the tire, possibly resulting in loss of control.
Tech International has agreed to replace the valve stems or a damaged tire, if the damage was due to a defective tire valve.
Owners are advised to contact Tech International at 1-740-967-9015.
Tire tread separation
Tire tread separation can be caused by bonding problems in the tire manufacturing process, contaminants introduced into the tire during the tire making process, under-vulcanization, old ingredients, improper sized components, or something as simple as air being trapped in between the layers of the tire during manufacturing. Detreading of these defective tires can result in single or multi vehicle accidents, or even rollovers. Even the auto manufacturers agree that drivers should be able to pullover, not rollover when a tire detreads. That is unfortunately not always the case.
