Risk
This product poses a serious risk of injuries because there is a possibility of a fault in the body of the tyre which causes deformation and material segregation in case of long usage under high-speed conditions. This could lead to reduction of the tyre’s pressure and to a possible loss of control of the vehicle. Five incidents have reported but none of them led to an accident.
