Many speculate that millions of recalled tires are still being used which poses a threat to drivers everywhere.Defects in tires can lead to various hazards including tire tread separation, blowouts, loss of air pressure, belt separations, and other occurrences. They can also increase a vehicle’s chance of rolling over in an accident or after certain movements while driving. The increase of risk is even higher for SUVs. Accidents related to defective tires can be among the most catastrophic because they warrant a complete loss of driving or vehicle control.
