A: From what you indicate, it doesn't appear to me that you need to seek bankruptcy protection. The bank which financed the truck is not responsible for the condition of the tires. But until they get a judgment, and seek to collect it, you probably have nothing to worry about. In any event, the need to file for bankruptcy protection depends upon whether you have assets and if so, whether they are exempt from garnishment.
