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.

If you have a concern you may report it to your state OSHA or US Dept of Labor OSHA
