On March 8, 2006, the right rear tire went flat when I was returning home from northern Virginia. This is the second time this has happened. Again, there was nothing in the road; I heard a popping noise, which was then followed by the tire going flat noise. Again I was able to pull over and get the tire changed (Michelin tire).

The tires in question have the same defects that have been shown on national T.V. the sides of my tires have blistered and are peeling along with a faint line where the tread was attached to the rest of the tire. Do I have to have an accident or have a fatality before somthing or someone will contact me " I have called and a report has been taken several times to Firestone with a comment that some one from Consumer Affairs will be in contact with me. My first report of my problem with these tires was 9-5-00. I have lost my job and falling behind on bills. I cannot afford a new set of replacement tires nor can I afford an auto accident. Will you please help me" sincerely, david saraceni (dot number: Hyhl tiresize: P235/75R15)
