I have experienced clanking and front end jumping when making turns in the front end of my 1999 Dodge Dakota. This was presented, which was adressed by rotating and balancing the front and back tires come to find out it was my upper ball joints in my suspension !!!!!!!! due to the milage put on my front tires, abnormal wear has occured due to the suspension. I must also replace the damaged tires caused by a Dodge defect!!!!!!! I am also suspecting excessive brake wear in the front end due to this.

Unsafe "Goodyear Wrangler St" tires. This morning in a light drizzle with the road getting wet but not puddled, my son and I while driving with in the speed limit and making a 90 degree turn slid into the opposite lane, luckly no one was coming in that lane. This was the twelfth time that I have slid on a slightly wet road. The first time I was stopping for a red light and I began to fish tail, we went two more blocks to the next red light, put on my brakes and we began to fish tail again. These tires do not have any traction on a wet road, even at a slow speed. I now have 11,000 miles on these tires and from day one they have been unsafe on wet roads, I have had twelve close calls with these tires and I believe it is time for me to file a complaint. Would you please check the history record on these "Goodyear Wrangler St" tires and see if there are any more complaints. I am 69 years old, driving since I was 16 and never had an accident, and I don't want one now over these tires that have no traction. I think that Goodyear should take these five tires back and give me safe tires that have traction on wet roads. These tires were on the brand new Dodge Dakota pick up truck that I purchased. Thank you, john E. brislin.

Consumer has a 1999, Dodge, Dakota. Tires were originals with only 50% of tread left on them. Goodyear to consumer they were sport performance tires that didn't really belong on a pick up truck. Tires had 13,000 miles on them. The tires were Goodyear Eagle ls (P255 65 R15).

A tire blew up which was oem at only 14,000 miles at highway speed under no weight load in the bed. I'm in a truck club of fellow Dakota owners. At least 6 others have stated problems with the stock Eagle ls tires exploding at 14,000 miles. While I only sustained damage of a blown tire and damaged rim, others have had multiple accidents with different Eagle ls tires blowing at differnet times. I've contacted Goodyear and Dodge directly. Unfortunately I didn't have the presence of mind to save the blown tire and rim for inspection. I don't expect anything personally from this but it would be nice if someone could look into this specific brand of tire. Thank you. (tiresize: 255/65/15)( dot number: Tire size: 255/65/15 )

Tire and rim identification label applied to all 1999 Dakota R/T pickup trucks incorrectly states rim size, tire size and tire inflation pressure. This does not meet the requirements of FMVSS no. 120

Tires were installed at the factory. Vehicle was purchased for standard - on the road - use. At no time prior to the purchase was it reported that, as equipped, the owners manual prohibited the use of tire chains or traction devices on this vehicle. This severly restricts use of the vehicle. A complaint was filed with the national center for dispute settlement who refused to hear the case as it was not "broken". rather this was something that was limited by design. The inability to use tire chains or traction devices represents a significant safety issue when used on the roads during winter months. DaimlerChrysler motors corporation and the dealer of purchase point fingers to each other, advising that each is a for-profit organization and the responsibility rests with the other party. Repeated calls to DaimlerChrysler motors corporation and the dealer of purchase have failed to discover the reason for the restriction. Consequently, I must assume that tire chain use would represent an operational risk.( dot number: Tire size: P255/65/15 )
