problem #6

Oct 032002

Ram 2500 4WD 10-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 14,000 miles


I was driving a 2001 Dodge Ram 2500 4X4 V-10 along interstate 50 in sacramento, ca in the fast or left lane and had installed brand new super swamper ssr 305/70/16 tires w/4,000 miles on them and while driving approximately 70 mph the left rear tire flew apart. The tread had separated from the steel cord in 2 large pieces and flew back at the car behind me causing a major car accident involving 3 cars not including mine. It caused extensive damage to my truck (apprx. $3,000) the police did an onsite report and after speaking to everyone had decided to let me go without a citation or using my insurance because it was determined that the person behind me caused the accident by trying to swerve and miss the flying debris hitting her car. I tried to take them back to the store where I purchased them and received a response of call the manufacturer which I did with no luck. All I have at this point is pictures but no dot#.

Ram 2500 6-cyl Diesel

While towing a trailer at approximately 75 mph (speed limit) on interstate highway 10 West between wilcox, AZ and benson, AZ, the left rear tire tread separated. As a consequence, the right front tire developed a flat spot rendering it unusable. The separated tread caused significant damage to the pickup towing the trailer and incidental damage to the front of the trailer. No one was injured. Two tires were replaced. The left bed side and associated parts were replaced and the dents in the bed were straightened. The old tires are available.

Ram 2500 4WD 8-cyl

During evacuation of vehicles prior to hurricane rita Texas parks and wildlife department staff were proceeding northbound on I-59 near edna, Texas, in a 2001 Dodge 3/4-ton 4X4 with Bridgestone dueler mt tires when a loud explosion was heard and a large piece of tread flew from the left rear of the truck. Several vehicles had to swerve to avoid being struck by the large piece of tire tread almost resulting in a serious accident. Staff were able to pull over and discovered the tread had separated from the tire causing damage to the left rear fender. The tire retained air but the tread was completely separated from the tire leaving the steel belts and underlayment exposed. Local Firestone dealers told us we would be charged top replace the tire.
