  • Automatic transmission
  • 50,000 miles
Driving on country road approximately 50 mph a thudding noise was heard and felt in the truck. After pulling over found the dirvers side rear tire to be blown - either sidewall failure or partial tread separation. This was on a Firestone steeltex R4S running a 55 psi on a 2003 Ford Excursion eddie bauer. Tires had approximately 50,000 miles on them. I replaced with the spare and continued on safely. A search of the internet revealed this site and lawyer sites detailing similar failures. Will be contacting Firestone.
