Do I have a case?

Were you driving on defective tire treads?

Tire treads:
  • Are you driving on defective tire treads?
  • Are you eligible for a tread separation lawsuit?
  • Do you or a loved one need a tread separation attorney caused by defective tire treads?
In 2000, Bridgestone/Firestone and Ford Motor Company jointly announced that Firestone would recall approximately 14.4 million tires. These tires have a safety-related defect as the tread separates from the tire.

Firestone estimates that about 6.5 million of these tires with defective tire treads are still in service. The recall involves all Firestone ATX and ATX II tires of the P235/75R15 size manufactured since 1991 and all Wilderness AT tires of that same size manufactured at Firestone's Decatur, Illinois plant. Ford Motor Company installed many of these tires as original equipment on their Ford Explorer SUV's and other vehicles.

In 2000 the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration issued a consumer advisory announcing that approximately 1.4 million additional tires with problematic tire tread not covered by the recall might also have the safety defects.

In late 2000, news reports revealed that some unscrupulous used tire dealers were trying to capitalize on the tire tread recall by reselling the recalled Firestone tires for $80 for a set of four. The vehicle owner could then turn around and get replacement tires worth around $500 from Firestone dealers. It is unknown how widespread this practice has gone. Since these tires with unsound tire treads have been associated with many deaths and injuries, this practice is unethical and has the potential to further compromise the safety of drivers.
