What are the defects?

A separation of the tyre sidewall may occur. This may lead to rapid pressure loss or reduced performance in the tyre.

What are the hazards?

If there is a rapid pressure loss or the tyre degrades this may lead to tyre failure, resulting in loss of vehicle control. This may increase the risk of an accident or injury to vehicle occupants and other road users.
