This paper looked at the role that tires play in car crash. In the course of our study, we analyzed various causes of tire related car crash which includes; tire pressure (under-inflation and over-inflation) and abnormal wears. Bad inflation pressure of tires, either under-inflation or over-inflation causes tires to wear easily and increases poor vehicle handling by drivers. The solution to the crashes originating from tire was also outlined; inflating the tire with its recommended inflation, using good tires that are not up to six years from the date of manufacture and also the use of tires with good tread will prevent tire related car crash. Keywords---Tire, car crash, inflation, prevention, wear, thread.
