While traveling at ordinary speed on even interstate surface (I-64) East bound the rear right tire of my mb E350W4 blewout. I was able stabilize the car and exit the highway as I was just then in front of a an exit. My tires had been recently inspected during a regular service of my car. There is no reason or event which could have caused the sudden tire failure. I have filed a complaint with Continental tire customer service, but the company has failed to acknowledge that their product may have manufacturing issues. Now I have observed a blemish developing on the sidewall of another tire. The dealer has suggested that "we watched it" for a time and see what happens. My tires are Continental, contiprocontact, 245/40 R18 93V, ms radial. Replacing the tire cost me some $350 sand could have cost me my life or very serious injury had I been traveling at higher speed or ir the front tire had failed rather than the rear. I firmly believe these tires pose an immediate threat to public safety.

The contact owns a 2008 Mercedes Benz E350. While driving 30 mph over a pothole the tire exploded. The tire was a Continental contipro contact size 245/40R18.93V. The front passenger tire exploded and the right rear tire developed a blister and the rim was no longer aligned. The failure could have led to a fatality due to the poor design. The wheel rim on the tires was 18 inches and the tire was two to three inches off the ground. These are the original tire and rims that came with the vehicle. There were no injuries and the vehicle was not damaged when the failure occurred. Roadside assistance repaired the tires. The vehicle was driven to the dealer the following day. The dealer stated that they were aware of the problem and the defect; yet, they were unable to offer any assistance. The manufacturer was contacted and informed him that they would give him a free tire which he did not receive. The failure mileage was 20,000.
