Global Tire Manufacturing Ramps Up Amid Concern About Quality Control, Dangerous Tread Defects

June 20, 2020 / PR Newswire

As global tire manufacturing ramps back up after  COVID-19 pandemic closings, trial lawyers at Kaster, Lynch, Farrar & Ball (KLF&B) are calling on the industry to be vigilant about quality control and urging regulators and consumers to be on the lookout for defective tires entering the market.

Tire manufacturing depends on precise temperature and humidity settings that affect chemical reactions, as well as complex mechanical adjustments, and any changes in those variables can result in dangerous tread defects, said trial lawyer Wes Ball.

"Tire manufacturing is a complicated process with no room for error," said Mr. Ball. "These companies have learned that government oversight only goes so far. We fight to hold them accountable when they fail to keep dangerous products out of the marketplace."
