Lax maintenance.

Trucking companies have a duty to properly maintain all of the vehicles in their fleet. This includes checking tire pressure levels, repairing punctured tires, and replacing tires that have worn down past recommended tread depth requirements. They also are required to perform regular inspections on all vehicles to ensure there are no mismatched tires or tires with different wear.

Loading violations.

A truck that is loaded beyond capacity places extra pressure on the tires, making it more likely that one (or more) will explode in transit. However, trucking companies may allow its truckers or loaders to overload trailers as a cost-cutting measure.
