We rely on our cars almost every day for everything from running errands to picking up our kids from soccer practice. The United States Department of Transportation Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) estimates that the average American drives more than 13,000 miles every single year – that means that the average American covers enough distance in their cars to drive from New York City to Tokyo and back. As amazing as the mechanical parts in our cars are, they can’t function properly without quality tires. These pieces of rubber are intended to last for up to a decade, but they can cause a serious accident if they burst without warning.

The United States Department of Transportation's National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates that around 11,000 crashes are caused by failing tires every year. One of the most serious causes of blowouts are underinflated tires, and even though tire pressure monitoring systems (TPMS) have reduced the likelihood of driving on a deflated tire by about half, that still leaves a huge portion of drivers unaware of the risk.
Other risks include tire sidewall failure, aging tires, and improperly retreaded tires. Manufacturers and retailers are required to provide accurate information on their products, and failing to do so can lead to a catastrophic crash, serious injuries, and even a totaled vehicle.
