Tires cannot be expected to last forever. Rubber degrades over time, and tires should be replaced every few years even though there may be tread left on the tire. But, new tires, or tires that have only been used for a short time, should not suffer a blowout, or tread separation.
Because of the way they are manufactured, steel-belted radial tires are especially prone to tread separation. Tread separation can cause a driver to lose control of the vehicle. Tread separation is usually due to some problem or defect in the manufacturing process. The tire may be designed defectively or constructed in a deficient manner. Perhaps the rubber used was too old and dry, or the tire was not properly inspected during the manufacturing process.
If you have experienced a defective tire related injury in an automobile accident or truck accident, seek legal help to obtain compensation for your losses.
