Last Summer (2000) My Family And I Were Driving From Merced, Ca To Santa Cruz, Ca For Vacation. The Temps Were Around 100 Degrees. I Have A 1997 f-150 Xlt Extended Cab With Wilderness Ht Tires And Approximately 22,000 Miles. The Right Rear Tire Sidewall Separated From The Tread And Blewout. I Purchased Another Wilderness Ht Tire In Santa Cruz For A Replacement. This Was About One Month Before The Recall Of The Wilderness At Tires. This Year During The Same Trip And Same Conditions And About 27,000 Miles On The Same Truck We Arrived In Santa Cruz And I Noticed The Right Rear Tire Had A Large Chunk Of Tread Missing And The Steel Belt Was Exposed. This Was Along The Side Of The Tire Near The Sidewall. I Examine The Left Rear Tire And Noticed A Crack Forming In The Same Area. I Had Placed The New Tire Purchased In 2000 On The Front Of The Truck With The Spare And The Tires On The Back Were Original Equipment Tires. I Still Have The Tires And Photographs Of The Separation.*ak (dot Number: W208 Tiresize: P235/70r16)
