Uniroyal Claims No Recall Nor Do They Acknowledge Any Similar Complaints On This Tire. I Have 3 Of These Tires And Have Safety Concerns On The 2-remaining Tires In Use.

My Third Uniroyal Liberator Tire Has Failed In The Same Manner As The Two Before. This Is My Third Complaint Concerning These Defective Tires. These Tires All Failed In The Same Exact Manner (tread/tire Separation) And All Within Weeks Or Months Of Each Other. The Tread Pulled Loose From The Carcass,causing A Bump-imbalance. I Recognized The Failure And Was Able To Drive Home Where I Changed To A Spare. I Later Replaced This Tire. This Tire Only Have About 37,000 Miles. Walmart,where I Purchased The Tires,refuses To Give Any Type Of Warranty Or Tire Credit And No Longer Carry This Tire. This Tire Had Plenty Of Tread And Was Well Within Its Life Span. This Liberator Tire Should Be Recalled And Pulled Off The Market Because Of Its Consistent Failure Rate. I Have Sent Complaints To Uniroyal With No Response. Please Have A Recall Before Someone Gets Killed Or Injured. These Things Are Junk. *tr
