1) During Normal Dry Weather Driving Conditions, Right Rear Tire Experienced A Catastrophic Failure. The Entire Tread Belt Separated From The Sidewall. Speed Was Approximately 60 Mph. 2) There Were No Personal Injuries Or Property Damages As A Result. 3) Contacted Corporate Offices Of Cooper Tire. I Was Told The Tire Was Damaged Before It Experienced The Failure. I Have Had The Tires For Approximately Three Years And While There Was A Minimum Of Tread Life Remaining, There Was Tread Life Remaining (approximately 6 Mon.). When I Took The Tire To The Cooper Tire Dealer, I Was Told The Failure Was Not Normal. I Have Pictures Of The Failed Tire. I Had To Pay For The Replacement Tire. The Cooper Tire Corporate Representative Presented Herself And Her Company As Not At Fault In This Case. I Am Not Concerned About Having To Pay For The Replacement Tire, I Simply Wanted This On Record In Case Others Experience Similar Incidents. *nm
