Firestone fr710 tires purchased in 2011 are experiencing tread separation around the shoulder of the tire starting with right front tire. Tires have approximately 30000 miles of mostly highway miles. All tires have been rotated every 6000 miles or less and all other vehicle components suspension, tie rods, ball joints, and alignment are all within spec per. Took said vehicle to two other tire shops to confirm tire shoulder separation.
While driving at 70 mph there was a loud noise, pulled off the road, inspected the vehicle, and discovered the right front tire was on the ground. The tread was completely g0ne.
