In the February 2010 issue of The American Association for Justice's TRIAL magazine, an article entitled "Don't Spin Your Wheels on a Tire Case" explains the basics of how tires are manufactured, their areas of defect and how the companies who produce them often evade responsibility for the injuries caused by them. The article discusses how to identify the manufacturer of a defect tire and points out the specific flaws such as tread separation, sidewall failures, bead failures, and ozone cracking. A definition of Multipiece wheels and their dangers is provided and the common defense arguments such as under inflation, impact damage, improper repair, punctures and loss of control is emphasized.
