Brown, LLC is investigating incidents of tire blow outs for low profile tires. There have been many reports regarding low profile tire injuries as well as low profile tire consumer fraud.
Low Profile tires may seem flashy, but they carry risks due to thin treads. In parts of the country that have snowstorms and potholes, the risk of a flat tire is higher and low profile tires may be considered unsuitable products. Many times car dealerships try to put individuals into these unsuitable products in order to push a tire insurance package to gain a commission off of it, or to gain the additional revenue of multiple tire sales when the tires pop during the winter months.
If you purchased or leased a vehicle with low profile tires and have had to pay for multiple tire replacements, the lawyers at Brown, LLC want to speak with you about your experience.
Many cars put the low profile tires as part of the sports package and may not orally inform the lessor or purchaser about the implications of the low profile tires. When offering tire insurance, they may make the consumer sign off that they are refusing tire insurance. Further, most purchases of vehicles nowadays involve the waiving of one’s rights to bring an action via an arbitration clause. The auto dealership is more emboldened to engage in deceptive sales practices when they know it is challenging for the individual consumer to address the issue on a classwide basis. Thus, it may be cost-prohibitive to bring a low profile tire class action
Here are some vehicles that have low profile tires:
- The Volkswagen Up GTI
- BMW 335xi
- BMW 5 Series
- BMW X3
- Audi A3
- Volkswagen Jetta
- Ford Mustang
Another facet of Low Profile Tire litigation is that attorneys may often overlook the fact that this could be a products liability case if unfortunately the tire busts and an injury occurs. In fact, if it’s a solo accident, oftentimes the driver and/or lawyer may think there’s no one to sue, when in fact there may be low profile tire injury lawsuit.
