Visible tire separation on firehawk gta 02 P195/55R16 86H M+S. the tires were replaced with Michelin all weather here at dr. Tire, hwy 21, beaufort, SC,29906. These tires would not have made the trip to charleston 80 miles away at the Firestone dealer. We did not keep the tires. I am only offering this info as a courtesy to the rest of the planet, who may have the same tires. Fortunately for my son and his family, he arrived for new year's without incident. I have photos of the faulty tire. All tires were replaced. The tire was split about 12 inches around where the tread interfaced with the sidewall and was separating. I did communicate with Firestone Consumer Affairs, but since I didn't take it back to a Firestone dealer, there was not much they could do for me. My husband followed him to the dr. Tire in the event there was a problem. We could not have driven the 80 miles to the Firestone dealer.
