Bald Tires: driving with bald or warn out tires during adverse weather conditions can cause the truck driver to lose control of the truck, have difficulty stopping, or the tires will burst. Even on dry land a dire that is bald makes it difficult to stop and easy to puncture.

Under-inflated or over-inflated: Correct air pressure is essential, the ability to steer and stability when turning are seriously compromised when a tire is over or under-inflated.

Manufactures defects: Any instability in a tire has the potential to cause a tire to blow; if a tire blows the truck driver and lose control of his rig causing an accident.

Excessive heat: Most people think that rain and cold weather affects tires more than hot weather; the truth is that air is a gas, when gas is heated it expands. This causes a truck’s tires to have more volume than they should. Truck drivers have been trained to deal with their tire pressure and a tire left unchecked can blow, causing a serious accident.

When an 18 wheeler driver is unable to control his rig on the road because he failed to properly check his tires, there can possibly be some costly effects.
