XC90 6-cyl

  • 69,000 miles


Michelin cross terrain with < 39K miles on 2008 Volvo XC90 had a tread separation at interstate highway speed during busy downtown traffic nearly creating an accident for me and two of my children. Vehicle damage caused solely by the tire flailing the right rear of my vehicle exceeded $3500. Tread completely separated from the steel belts as a continuous ring. Tread lugs can be pulled away by hand from the lower rubber they appear to be bonded to and this underneath ring of rubber had very cleanly pulled away from the belts. Tire remained inflated. Evidence of impending failure was noted as I was feeling vibration from the tire for 30 minutes prior to catastrophic failure and had even stopped to inspect the wheel for a probable cause. Photo documentation available. Internet searching is clearly showing that, for this model tire, this is a common occurrence. Does anybody remember the over 250 deaths attributed to the tread separation of Bridgestone tires on Ford Explorer? I do.
