A tread separation on a pickup truck or an SUV can turn deadly in a fraction of a second when the tire deflates or blows out and the driver is unable to control the vehicle, often resulting in a fatal rollover accident. The danger is of losing control is greatest when a rear tire fails on the vehicle.
