Toyo Recalls Tires for Defects

By Car Accident Help on February 6, 2012

California-based Toyo Tires is recalling 66,000 tires that may have been made with a kink in the bead, which could lead to tire failure. According to a news report in Auto Week, the company will recall the P225/60R-16 Extensa A/S tires that were distributed in the United States from Sept. 20, 2009, to Nov. 6, 2010. Company officials say some of these tires have a manufacturing defect where they were made with a kink in the bead. This kink could lead to a crack near the bead, especially when the tire is underinflated. When left unattended, the crack could lead to sudden tire failure. The defective tires involved in this recall were manufactured in a Georgia plant and bear the “Made in the USA” label. Those who own these tires will be notified and will receive free replacement tires.

The statement that your life rides on your tires every time you get on the road is not an exaggeration. According to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), underinflation is the leading cause of tire failure. Underinflation can also affect vehicle handling and fuel consumption, but most importantly, it has a significant effect on overall safety. Underinflation can also lead to structural failures, such as tire tread separation. That is why it is critical to check and adjust tire pressure at least once a month and before every long trip. You can find your vehicle’s recommended pressures on a label located on the driver’s doorframe or in the glove box.

However, if your tires are inherently defective and you are injured as a result, then the manufacturer of the defective tire can be held liable for your injuries and losses. If you or a loved one has been injured by a defective product, the experienced Oklahoma City dangerous products lawyers at the Maples Law Firm can provide you with more information about pursuing your legal rights.
