Imported tire stems are said to have the potential to cause numerous dangerous tire failures across the country this summer. The stems are shown to crack prematurely which causes the entire tire to be useless.
The stems in question were sold on tires between September 2006 and June 2007. The defective stems have already been blamed in one lawsuit filed in Florida. In that accident, the driver of a vehicle was killed when his tires failed due to a defective valve stem.
One importer has already issued a recall for the valve stems. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is looking into the situation and has issued an advisory.
