Almost identical circumstances as in ODI 10137234. Big O tires aligned my van in Oct 2005 and discovered the tread separation. Alignment was within spec, except camber or caster on the rear were 0.02 degrees out. They referend me to the dealer. At first, over the telephone, the dealership said it was due to neglet and referred me to an authorized Goodyear dealer. Goodyear tire dealership discovered tread separation on all 4 tires on my 2004 Oldsmobile minivan on the inside edge, under the vehicle. Goodyear saw my rotation/balance records and agreed to warrant the tires. This is why all four tires were worn, due to rotaiton every 6-8K miles. They gave me prorated credit based on tread depth remaining. 50% for two and 25% for the other two credit. Mileage is at 32K. They also explained that we should not drive on them until replaced. Of course I replaced them with another model of Goodyear. I was concerned that my wife and kids would be killed in an accident (wife's car). Big O tire also stated they have heard of tread separation on these exact tires, the ls model, on other vans. I demand that both Goodyear and Oldsmobile should address this situation for a recall. In addition, full reimbursement is necessary for replacement. This needs to be addressed immediately to prevent possible injury and/or death.
