Alliance is recalling tire model number 396, size 445/65R22.5, which were manufactured April 22, 2013, to November 23, 2014, and size 600/50R22.5 manufactured May 27, 2013, to November 2, 2014, because of a tread defect. The tires have a radial construction consisting of a steel casing and steel belts under the tread. The problem is that the belts are becoming loose, which will lead to the tread separating from the tire. This results in a sudden deflation of the tire. These tires are dual-purpose tires for trucks. They can provide traction for off-road applications, and can be used on the roadways at highway speed. The cause of the problem is currently unclear.
Alliance will notify owners, and dealers will reimburse consumers for the defective tires. The recall is expected to begin in March 2015. Owners may contact Alliance customer service at 800-343-3276. Alliance’s number for this recall is ATG-396HS-001.
Americans rely on manufacturers to provide a safe well-designed product. Sadly, that is not often the case. The Auto Defect Attorneys at The Brandi Law Firm have successfully represented many people injured from defective autos such as Toyotas, Fords, Chryslers, Hondas, GM, and their component parts. Additionally, we have successfully represented people injured by defective helmets, bicycles, motorcycles, fuel pumps, brakes, car seats, seat belts, air bags, table saws, pumps, industrial machinery used in the workplace, barbeques, heating systems, and numerous other household and industrial products.
Often times, people involved in accidents do not examine the issues of defective product design, the risks inherent in the design, feasible alternatives, and appropriate warnings. In a car accident, we examine whether the car was truly crashworthy – does it contain the appropriate crash protection. In accidents where someone strikes a guardrail, people often do not consider the guardrail may be unsafe, installed improperly, or whether there is a contributing factor in the roadway design leading to a dangerous condition. We have represented a number of people seriously injured in these types of accidents involving dangerous conditions of roads and crashworthy vehicles. If you or a loved one has been injured in an auto crash, our attorneys at The Brandi Law Firm are available to consult with you. Please contact our office at 800-481-1615 or email us.
