Common Causes of Tire Tread Separation
Often consumers are not aware of the danger of tire defects until a manufacturer is forced to recall large quantities of faulty products. Tire tread separation, however, is not a new phenomenon. Tire tread separation is a dangerous condition where the tread of a tire separates itself from the casing or inner plies of the tire. Tread separation is one of the most common types of failure in steel belted radial tires. Tread separation on steel belted tires frequently cause blowouts while travelling which can lead to devastating motor vehicle accidents.
What causes this separation to begin with?A manufacturer’s defect is a common cause of tread separation such as:
- Faulty chemical process of tire manufacturing
- Poor adhesion of the steel belt and rubber tread
- Moisture or other impurities causing damage during bonding process
- Inadequate quality control
Tire blowouts due to tire separation can create a dangerous situation for all travelers on roadways.
