What Causes a Tire Blowout?

Tire blowouts can occur when a semi truck, tractor-trailer, or personal vehicle have improperly sized tires (not meeting pressure requirements or weight restrictions), defective tires (recalled tires or improperly manufactured tires), or tires that are not maintained properly.

Other issues that can lead to a tire blowout include:

  • Potholes
  • Overloading a vehicle
  • Small punctures
  • Debris in the roadway

A tire blowout can occur at any time, which is why it is important for drivers of commercial and personal vehicles to properly maintain and check their tires.

Common Causes of Truck Tire Blowout

When a tire fails, the whole trailer of a semi-truck can be thrown off balance, or even tip over. The driver may also find it more difficult or impossible to steer. As soon as the trucker loses control of the truck, for whatever reason, a dangerous crash becomes almost inevitable.

The most common reasons for a truck tire blowout include:

  • Improper retreading: Truck tires are designed to allow new treads to be applied over an old, worn-down tire. When done correctly, these tires are perfectly safe. However, when done incorrectly or on a tire that is too old, tire separation is likely to occur. Tire or tread separation happens when the tread breaks free of the tire while the truck is moving. These large, heavy strips of rubber can hit other cars and even break windshields.
  • Old tires: When tires become too old, they have a much greater chance of failing or shredding on the road. Old tires may also have shallow tread that will not effectively stop a truck. Sometimes, trucking companies neglect to change old tires to save money.
  • Mismatched tires: If a tire needs to be replaced, the company or driver is supposed to replace all the wheels on the axle to maintain balance. When a new tire is paired with an old, worn-down tire, the difference in their sizes could be enough to cause stress to one or both of them, increasing the chances of tire failure.
  • Defective tires: Sometimes, tires fail due to manufacturing defects. In this case, the company that makes the tires could be held liable for any injuries caused by the blowout.
