Brand new tire completely failed at highway speed. This tire was 7 days old and there was a total sidewall failure. Looking online after the incident, there are countless complaints of the same issue.

Jetta 4-cyl

  • 120,318 miles
Four new Continental contiprocontact tires were purchased and installed on my 2000 VW Jetta. After approx. 2 days, one tire went flat while driving at low speeds. Tire sent to seller, and they pronounced it was an installation issue. This tire was sent to seller, after purchasing a new one. After 4 to 5 weeks of driving, a second tire (different wheel) from the same original set of 4, failed suddenly. This tire "suddenly" failed with a "gun shot" like noise while the vehicle was stationary. Review at the service shop showed nothing unusual in the installation. Pictures of the second tire were sent to the manufacturer, and they commented that this was an install issue. I work for an automotive engineering company, and had one of our expert technicians review the second tire. He has 30 years of service experience within Chrysler dealerships. He was convinced that this was a tire defect, had never seen such a failure, and stated that this type of failure would not happen during installation. This was based on the loose condition of the steel ring on the inner tire, and the fact that their were no witness tool marks on the outside of the tire. The original installer of the tires also stated that the rubber on the inner bead of the tire was "too thin" and of poor construction. I have the second tire in my possession, and have requested the original first tire back from the seller. I have not yet received this, nor have I received any formal conclusive report with measurements and analysis to prove their conclusion. Right now they are only stating their personal opinion, without thorough analysis. I am still driving on the remaining tires with an "uneasy" feeling that I am at risk of another catastrophic failure. I am only after the truth in this matter, and up to now have felt as though it has not been presented. I didn't create this failure, and I have a hard time seeing how the installer, who does this for a living, could have done it to 2 tires.
