What Is Tread Separation?
Tread separation is a fairly common type of defect affecting auto tires, including those produced by Michelin. It occurs when the inner tire separates from the outer tire wall or casing, leading to tire failure and blowout. This, in turn, can cause serious accidents, especially when tread separation occurs at high speeds.
Tread separation is commonly the result of a defective tire design and manufacturing. Improper bonding of the tread or steel belting within the tire can eventually lead to tread separation. Tires intended for large commercial vehicles are particularly susceptible to tread separation and blowouts due to the heavy loads they are required to carry. When these tires are defective, they are unable to carry such loads, leading to catastrophic tread separation and devastating truck accidents.
