2001 Ford F-150 Owner Comments

problem #5

I have a 01' svt lightning. I along with probably hundreds others on nloc.net all report problems with the stock Goodyear F1's @ correct tire pressure. They all split the sidewall. I've had about 7 F1's split on my truck in with in the past year I've owned it. All of my splits were on the front. I can't speak for all the rest of the lightning owners on their tire locations. I also had a problem with those tires pulling my truck from side to side in the ruts in the road. I thought maybe it was normal for such wide tires. I run nitto tires on it now with no issues (splitting or pulling) what so ever. I no longer use any type of Goodyear tires on any of my cars and truck. Kramer Goodyear told me the last time that Goodyear is aware of the problem and they'll prorate me a price on a new F150. After the 7th time I asked why would I want to keep buying another overpriced F150 over and over again that I know will split sooner or later and I'd be right back in here getting a prorated tire again? the 295/45/18 Goodyear F1 is a defective tire and someone if they haven't already are going to be killed running these tires. Lightning are high performance trucks and most people that own them, race them. Ford should really cancel their relationship with Goodyear(nascar should too). Goodyear is all about the name and their products are junk. It's amazing Firestone gets in trouble but not Goodyear.

On 05-31-04, I was driving my 2001 Ford F150 4WD pickup on a trip to South Florida. On the way I stopped to check my oil/gas and tires and observed 4 cracks on my front right tire. The cracks were approximatelly 1 inch from the rim and appeared approximatelly 1/8 deep. Upon further inspection I observed the drivers side tire was also deveolping addtional leeks. The tires are 2001 Goodyear Wrangler rts 255 70 16. According to research this is a common problem wondering about a recall.
