Myrtle Beach Tire Defect Lawyer

Driving is often taken for granted until something goes wrong. A defective tire can rapidly transform a routine commute into a life-threatening ordeal. Tires are the crucial link between your vehicle and the road, so when they fail, you lose control. A tire defect could cause rapid air loss or even a catastrophic tread separation, with disastrous consequences.

In the blink of an eye, a manufacturing error can turn a tire from a safety component into a ticking time bomb. You deserve justice if you have suffered injuries or losses due to a faulty tire. The Stanley Law Group’s experienced Myrtle Beach tire defect lawyer will tenaciously pursue the compensation you’re owed. Don’t go against the tire manufacturers alone.

What Are the Common Tire Defects?

Even a minor tire defect can have devastating consequences at highway speeds. Over our firm’s 60 years of legal experience, we have seen the carnage caused by tire failures. While drivers may assume a blowout resulted from road debris, the truth is that manufacturing and design issues are often to blame.

  • Design defects: Design defects occur when the engineering, materials, or construction of the tire is fundamentally flawed from the outset. This could include insufficient reinforcement layers, incompatible rubber compounds, or insufficient resistance to heat buildup and degradation.
  • Manufacturing defects: Manufacturing defects happen when something goes wrong during the production process. Improper curing, trapped air pockets, or substandard materials can all create weaknesses that may not be immediately apparent but can cause catastrophic failure down the road.
  • Bead fracture: Bead fractures refer to cracks or separations in the bead bundle, the series of reinforced steel cables that anchor the tire to the wheel rim. When the bead fails, the tire can completely detach from the wheel.
  • Sidewall zipper failures: Sidewall zipper failures happen when the steel belts in the tire detach from the outer rubber, allowing the tread to peel away in one disastrous motion at high speeds, like a zipper opening.
  • Wheel explosions: Wheel explosions occur when a manufacturing defect causes the tire’s inner liner to separate and rapidly lose all air pressure in an uncontrolled burst, leading to complete loss of control of the vehicle.
