Observation: part or all of the tread torn off.
Probable Cause(s):these tears are the result of delamination between elements of the internal structure, generally
caused by: - excessive heat build-up due to:
running for long periods under-inflated or overloaded, a fitment which is not in line with the vehicle manufacturer's
recommendations (load and speed rating), widespread oxidation of the internal metallic structure due to cuts, perforations
and various forms of tread damage.
Tyre: to be withdrawn from use.
Vehicle: check all the tyres on the vehicle - follow the vehicle manufacturer's recommendations (load/speed ratings)
- check and set the tyre pressures as recommended by the tyre manufacturer and/or vehicle manufacturer.
