Overweight and Overloaded Trucks in Hialeah and Florida Can Lead to Tire Problems

One of the biggest factors that can negatively affect tires has to do with truck cargo. Not only is excessively heavy truck cargo dangerous because it can result in rollovers and can cause a truck driver to lose control of their vehicle, but overloaded and overweight trucks also put extra pressure on the entire truck, including the tires. When a truck is overloaded and excessively heavy, it can do many things to the tires:

  • It can cause tread separation
  • It can cause the tires to become bald excessively quickly
  • It can lead to tire blowouts
  • It can cause tires to deflate more quickly
  • It can cause tires to overheat, especially when breaking or going down hills, resulting and tire blowouts and other issues

It is crucial that truck carriers and truck drivers ensure that the load of cargo that they are carrying does not exceed the weight limits of their truck tires.

Tire Inflation and Tire Safety

In order for truck tires to work correctly and safely, they must be properly inflated. Underinflated tires can make it harder for a truck driver to control their vehicle and can result in a collision. Overinflated tires can lead to a tire blowout or can put extra pressure on the tires, causing the tires to wear out prematurely or lose tread more quickly.

It is expected that truck carriers will have a maintenance schedule to keep their truck tires and the rest of their trucks in good condition. Under federal laws, truck drivers are also expected to visually inspect their tires before every trip and to keep a written inspection log of their trucks and their tires. When they fail to do so and tire issues result in a traffic collision, injured parties may have the right to seek compensation for their injuries.
