These tires (bridgestone turanza el42 ? 215/65r16) were oem on my 2007 Dodge Caravan with a firestone/bridgestone warranty. At 10,000 miles I noticed a pull to the right. I purchased a lifetime alignment and rotated the tires at b/f. After another 1300 miles, the pull was a harder right. F/b checked the alignment, stating it was good and told me this was a "belt" issue. . . . Put the "bad" tires to the rear and ordered two oem tires. I am awaiting 2 new tires of the same oem (one to be warranted the other self pay). The f/b store, where I purchased the lifetime alignment, tells me you can check a belt problem by cross rotating the tires. Until that test is completed, they cannot consider replacing a damaged tire under the warranty. Both tires are under the 12 month-2/32 depth warranty provided with my new car. I think f/b should cover the warranty on both damaged tires without any need to test for a belt issue. Either the ?bad? belt damaged 2 tires or an improper alignment damaged 2 tires. . Read more...

We had a euro tour tire from big o (serial #u9ytt2n3903 produced by cooper tires size 205/70r15 [this size is not listed on the tire section]) on the front of our Dodge Caravan. My son was driving on the freeway that had been completed approximately a year before so the freeway was in excellent condition. My son said that while they had our van they had not hit anything nor was there anything in the road. The cop who helped my son change the tire said my son had not hit anything. Both steel belts blew out. My son said the tire exploded! it blew out the wheel well, blew off the bumper,blew out the headlight, blew out some of the wiring and broke the bottle for the windshield wipers & gave the fender a fat lip. My daughter-in-law was the vehicle ahead & looked back just in time to see pieces of tire & van flying everywhere. Luckily the van did not roll. There was $1800-$1900 worth of damage to our van. Big o replaced the tire but when we sent it cooper, they said they believed the tire failed because of a probable impact. A cooper tire dealer & the big o dealer in pocatello both told me they felt the tire was faulty. They did not believe the damage to the tire could possibly have resulted from impact. Everyone except cooper thinks damage to the tire indicates it actually exploded.

The left rear tire on my Dodge Caravan blew out and ripped while driving on the interstate. This was a scary situation because had there been a lot of traffic there would have been a serious perhaps fatal accident. This is the second tire to have been damage within two weeks. I believe the tires are defective. I would like an investigation done. I also don't feel safe driving this car for fear of an accident involving bad defective tires. I also would like to have my tires replaced at no cost to me because the damage was not may fault. Please help me resolve this problem.
On 22 April 2002 at approximately 5:35 pm while driving on I-10 west near lordsburg, nm my van started to vibrate violently. I assumed it was uneven pavement however when I slowed down the vibration diminished but did not cease. Not sure what the problem was I exited and stopped for the day. The next morning while inspecting the car I noticed the passenger side rear tire was coming apart (badly). I had the damaged tire changed and the others inspected. The other tires appeared fine. I bought the tires new in April 1999. They have approximately 34,000 miles on them. I still have the damaged tire. Do you want it? please feel free to contact me.

While coming down a hill left front tire started smoking. Took to dealer, and they said that consumer should not drive vehicle.
I've had a half dozen customers' Caravans with goodyear conquest tires that I've caught in time to avoid any blowouts. These tires are slipping belts, and the treads are separating. The worst case was one 1998 Caravan with 35k miles, and 3 of 4 tires were about to let go. (steel belts breaking through tread around 1/2 circumference of tire) I don't believe air pressure to be an issue here!!( dot number: tire size: 215/70/15? ).

2003 Dodge Caravan. Consumer writes in regarding tire installation services at sam's club. The consumer purchased five tires from two different locations, but the same company. The tires that were installed were bf goodrich p215/70r15 97t touring t/a pro tires. A few days later, the consumer noticed that one of the tires was in fact the wrong size tire and had an inadequate load carrying capacity for his vehicle. He also noticed the tires were almost worn out and needed to be replaced. The consumer stated with the tires wearing out prematurely, it was a testament that the tires were inadequate for his vehicle.
Rear tire was damaged and losing air. Yh.
While driving, the vehicle had vibration in steering wheel. The dealer was unable to correct the problem. Consumer states that the cause of vibration was reduced tire pressure by the dealer.
