As I Was Driving The 2000 ford E350 Uhaul The Rear Right Tire Disintergrated And Blew Out While Driving At 55 Mph On A Very Hot Day In Northern California. I Temporarily Lost Control Of The Truck But Managed To Pull Off The Road Where I Waited A Long Time For The Highway Patrol To Rescue Me.

Driving South On I-25 From Albequerque To El Paso. Tire Blew Out & I Made A Controlled Stop. Looking Under The Rear Inside Dual Wheel I Saw The Tire Was Shredded. I Exited Almost At Once To A Small Town Named Belen, N.m. This Occurred Almost Noon On A Saturday. I Considered Myself Lucky To Find A Tire Store Open In Such A Small Town. I’m Almost 75 With A Heart Condition. No Way I Was Going To Attempt To Change That Tire On A Hot Interstate Alone. Craig Tire Co. Explained The Recall Policy. They Replaced The Blown Tire (in 2 Pieces) And Placed It In My Rv Motor Home. I Paid Them $165.08 And Have The Receipt. I Was Lucky To Have Found A Tire Dealer On Saturday In The Middle Of The New Mexico Desert. I Have Called ford, Firestone, The Rv Dealer, The Rv Manufacturer, The Local Tv Station, Even The Newspaper. I Understand There Have Been Many Complaints. Thank God No One Was Injured Or Killed. Thence, News Of No Importance! Wrong! I’m Retired. Unexpectingly I Purchased This Vehicle To Travel At My Leisure. The Price Of Almost $69,000.00 Is Not Primarily Important. Someone Selling Me Something That Could Have Ended My Wife’s And My Lives Is My Major Concern. How Many Other Unexpecting Buyers May Not Be As Fortunate? I Used To Drive A Semi; I Owned 12 Trucks. Good Thing I Had Experience With Blowouts. Perhaps The Next Person Won’t Know How To Handle The Blowout. Luckily, This Was Not A Front Tire, But An Inside Dual Rear Tire. I Don’t Want The Firestone I Have. No One Is Interested In My Problem Nor Reimbursement. Additiionally, On Closer Examination I Found Another Tire, Same Size, On The Right Rear Outside Dual Has A 2″ Crack In The Sidewall, Which I Deem Unsafe To Drive On. I Also Own A 1998 ford Ranger Equipped With Firestone Wilderness Ht Tires, P225/70r15 M/s 1005. This Vehicle Has Only 5,281 Miles, Purchased New. I’m Told Wildreness Ht’s Are Not Included In The Recall. I Would Appreciate Your Clarification. (dot Number: Vd1l 1xd Tiresize: 225/75r16e)
