My daughters Jeep just failed state inspection due to severe cracking of the tire next to the rim. All 4 tires are Goodyear Wrangler St 225/75/16 104S. The tread depth is still very good however they will not pass state inspection due to the large cracks totally around the rims. A tech at the local Jeep store told me that this is a huge problem with these tires. He stated that this problem goes way back.the local Goodyear dealer (sullivan tire) will not do anything to help. Goodyear used to be one of the best tires, what happened? it seems that all of the other tire companies offer a much better product. No more Goodyear tires for my family!!!

My daughter was returning home to madison, al from auburn university, Alabama using interstate I-65 North. Just outside of birmingham, al at mile marker 170 she had a blowout of the right rear tire. The tire tread seemed to completely separate from the sidewall all around the tire. The tire was completely useless. The tire was on a Jeep Grand Cherokee overland with full time four wheel drive, which we believe helped my daughter come to a safe stop on the highway median. The tire was a Goodyear Wrangler sr a P235/65 R17 dot MK87 dywr 0506. We are now very concerned about the quality of the remaining Wrangler tires on this vehicle and if it is safe to continue to use them. Pictures of the damaged tire and the tire itself are available.

The manufacturer put the wrong size tires on the vehicle. It was told to the consumer at 24,000 miles that tires were worn out. Consumer could not get the right tire for the vehicle. Goodyear Wrangler, St all season, P22575R16, 104S, weight rating 1984 maximum......Goodyear tires wore out at 23000 miles. Consumer claimed that he was told by Goodyear that he should get 60000 to 70000 miles on that tire. In checking for replacements both B.F.goodrich and Michelin refused to put their tires on consumer's vehicle. They stated that their tire must have a rating of 106S.
