It certainly sounds like you have a valid claim against either Discount Tire, the tire manufacturer, or both. The real question in my mind is whether there were significant injuries from the crash, as these can be expensive cases to pursue.
A Texas attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for three weeks. As a general matter nationwide, the victims would probably go after the woman (as the registrant of the vehicle) and the driver. The fact that he doesn't have insurance is irrelevant.

A Texas attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for four weeks. Only a local attorney could advise meaningfully as to the operation of first-party benefits and the type of jurisdiction Texas is in terms of such benefits, but as a general premise, a number of different forms of money...Read more »
It's not clear that you have a question. However as it involves some serious issues, and this is a public site, I suggest you contact an attorney who handles criminal defense in the states where you are charged or where you have concerns and do not discuss these issues on any social media.
I let someone use my car and they damaged the whole driver side. They said theyd pay for damages, but now they are giving me a hard time with getting it fixed. Refusing to pay. I have text messages stating they would pay for the damages but no other proof that they were driving.
