Dear Tricam Industries and Tractor Supply,
You are welcome to contact me to discuss the attached and below failure of your product.
I will forward you all the pics and the fastener expert’s statement determining the cause of the spilt rim tire failure 15 minutes out of the box.
Your split rim tire exploded as a result of poor product quality of the fasteners (Nut in Bolts) holding the tire together.
Summary – Note sufficient thread engagement between the Nut and Bolt. Even when the tire is pressurized well below manual specification.
I will be posting all the pic and information on Facebook, Twitter and U Tube on or before Jan 1, 2014. I am fully aware of Michigan’s laws regarding liability and responsibility of the distributor (Tracker Supply) and Manufacture (Tricam Industries.).
I suffered from a broken nose,skull, teeth, my nose and upper lip were ripped and hanging from my face. I experienced emotional depression and numerous fear of any object striking my face. My fear of driving lasted 3 months, I often had to wear a helmet and face shield just to drive my car to work. It has taken me 14 month and many discussions with attorneys to come to turns with the situation and determine the path I will undertake against Tractor Supply and Tricam Industries.
I have purchase additional parts from Tricam Industries Website and Cart from Tractor Supply to develop a record of history and poor product quality.
