When a tire tread becomes old or worn, there can be a sudden tire failure or rupture. Big rig accidents can be especially dangerous, so it is important that semi truck drivers inspect their tires regularly and make sure their tires are well-maintained. If poor tires cause an 18-wheeler crash, then the driver and possibly the trucking company are guilty of negligence.
