On A Camping Trip I Awoke On The Morning Of 9/30/00 To Find The Right Front Tire Flat. I Installed The Spare And When I Got Home Secured Replacement Goodyear Tires And Commenced To Install Them. Prior To Demounting The Right Front I Inflated It To Determine Where The Air Was Escaping. It Appeared To Be Escaping In An Area Between The Tread Pattern. When I Demounted The Tire I Inspected The Interior And Could See No Evidence Of A Penetration Wound And Could Find No Type Of Foreign Object. In My Two Years Working At A Tire Installation Facility (sears) I Never Encountered A Failure Of This Nature. Needless To Say With The Events Of The Past Several Months At Firestone And My Subsequent Tire Failure My Confidence In The Firestone Tire Company Has Been Seriously Eroded. Firestone Is Now Recalling Some Sixteen Inch Tires But As Yet Have Not Included The 235/85 Steeltex. I Was Curious To Know If Any Failures Of My Size Tire Have Been Brought To Your Attention. Thank You For Your Time. Sincerely Richard Neitzel. *ak( Dot Number: Vnor1ww365 Tire Size: 235/85r16 )

Tires Are Cracking Around The Bead On The Rim. I Have Contacted Cooper About This And Was Told My Suspension Is Stiff Causing The Tire To Flex More Than Normal. I Have Contacted Les Schawb, And Big O Tire Companies About This Statement, And Was Told This Is Totally Wrong. Cooper Has Replaced 4 Sets Of Tires In 2 Years. They Made Sure That Dot Numbers Did Not Match On Three Occasions. Cooper Has Told Be I Will No Longer Receive Tires Becasue I Have A Load Range D Tire, And ford Recomends A Load Range E. The Tire I Have Purchased Will Carry Aprox 500lbs More Than The Tire ford Recomends. This Is Why Les Schwab And Big O Tires Are Saying Cooper Is Trying To Get Out Of Their Responsibility Of Replacing A Defective Product.*ak (dot Number: 28161-3 Tiresize: 285/75/r16)
