The Right Rear Tire Experienced Complete Catastrophic Failure While Driving The Highway At 70mph. The Temperature On The Day Of The Failure Was Approximately 100 Degrees. There Was Sufficent Tread On The Tire And The Pressure Was Maintained At 70 Psi. There Was No Debris In The Road And There Were No Signs That There Were Any Problems With The Tire. When The Tire Blew Out The Tread Slung Upward Into The Tail Pipe Driving It Into The Fender, Causing $800.00 Worth Of Body Damage. I Believe These Tires Are Not Receiving The Attention Of The Tires On The ford Suv’s Because Trucks Do Not Tend To Roll Over, Therefor Fatalities Are Not Reported.
