Ammons’ client had just finished mounting a Titan 18.4-30 heavy-duty R1 tractor tire on its rim and was putting a valve stem in the tire when a bead on the tire failed. The tire rim assembly separated explosively, striking him in the head. Our client suffered fatal head injuries. He had been a tire serviceman earning $25,000 annually and is survived by his parents, wife, adult daughter, and minor son. On behalf of his client, Ammons sued the manufacturer of the tire, alleging defective design in that the tire’s bead design incorporated several side-by-side layers of .037-inch wires, requiring each wire to be terminated on top and on bottom of the bead.
