Had Tread Separations On 4 Of The Original 6 Tires. At Advise Of Dealer Replaced Oem Tires With A Larger Size Bridgestone Tire Which Has Not Failed To This Point. We Were Told By The Tire Dealer That The Bridgestones Had A Greater Load Capacity Than The Firestones. The Problem Is The Brigestones Are Larger, Have A Greater Rolling Diameter And Affect The Overall Gearing To A Point Where The Vehicle Is Sluggish (well, It Was Always Sluggish, But Now It’s More So) And The Transmission Now Hunts In And Out Of O/d. This Is Not The Answer. We Need The Oem Size Tire Back On The Vehicle But It Has To Hold Up. The Failures Started At 12,00 Miles And Occured At 14,000 And The Last 2 @ 16,000. Two Times The Tread Separation Destoyed The Storage Boxes Adjacent To The Rear Wheel Wells Resulting In A Damaged Propane Line, The Wiring To A Portion Of The Cabin Was Severed And Structural Damage To The Basement Storage Boxes. When We Saw The Investigation Into Steeltex Tires It Only Confirmed What Firestone Would Not Say; That Is There Is A Problem With These Tires. Copies Of Receipts For The Damaged Parts And Repairs Can Be Furnished Upon Request. (dot Number: Vn1l1xa176 Tiresize: Lt22575r16)
