1998 Chevrolet Suburban suffered damage to vehicle when a blowout occurred.

problem #6

  • miles
The tire blew up - completetly disintergrated without warning - the pressure had been checked before the trip and no road hazrards were noticed - however the car following noted the tire looked low before it blew - so it had to have lost pressure during the @10 miles and then disentergrated.

problem #5

Suburban 4WD

  • miles
We were driving straight at 70 mph on I-35; all tires were properly inflated; there were no obstructions or debris in the roadway; without warning, the left rear tire came apart. The tread came off of the tire, wrapped around the axle while the wheel kept turning. From what I've read on your site, this appears to be exactly the same as the Firestone/Explorer problems.

These tires did not last one year. Odometer reading 30249 when tires new. I changed the tires at odometer reading 59126 miles. The tires are rated for 50, ooo. I had the tires rotated before I took a trip to Kansas City this past summer in May. I was told by the owner of the Goodyear service center in beaumont Texas that the reason for the tire failure was under inflation. The tire manufacturer recommends one inflation and the auto manufacturer recommends another. I asked the Goodyear service manager if Goodyear had this in writing he said no. I beleive I got ripped off! the two times I had my vehicles tires balance I was not told that at the Goodyear dealerships that they were under inflated. I would not purchase another Goodyear tire even though the company I work for has them as a customer butadiene customer. I went to another company and got tires for my vehicle and met a Goodyear employee and the beaumont Texas facility that told me he had the same problem and even though he worked for Goodyear plant he would not purchased their tires. He also by here say told me that a retired gentleman at the Firestone facility in illonois plant told him that they made tires with other tire company names. I would like to know if this is true. I have four children and a sick wife and I can't afford to be duped by conglomerate tire manufactures. If I have been wronged as I feel I think the american public sould be protected against such practices. (tiresize: 235/75R1C)( dot number: Tire size: 235/75R1C )
