Traveling westbound in hwy 54 east of stratford, TX the left rear tire exploded on our 2008 pleasure-way RV. This RV is built on a Ford e350 chassis. The vehicle immediately became uncontrollable and drifted into the path of an oncoming tractor-trailer. Driver steered vehicle to the right to avoid the oncoming truck, the RV crossed over the road into a ditch on the right, again turned to the left and re-entered the roadway at a sharp angle causing the vehicle to roll onto its right side. Passenger 1 sustained a broken right shoulder and back injuries, passenger 2 sustained a severely sprained wrist. Tire pressure was checked before beginning the trip, and tires were visually inspected at a rest stop 90 minutes before incident. Vehicle was lightly loaded and well below gvwr. These were oem tires with less than 10,000 miles and had always been properly maintained. There was absolutely no warning before the tire failed.

I was traveling down highway 528 on 7/1/04 at around 9 a. M. , my speed was approximately 75 mph, the front drivers side thread separated from the tire causing the truck to lift up on one side about two feet. I was in heavy traffic and it almost caused an accident. The impact dented the side of my fender and damaged the trim panel on my truck. The tire was still full of air and I managed to limp on the shoulder of the road to a Ford dealership where they put my spar tire on for free. It is noted in the repair invoice the mileage 57663 and the damage that was done. The tires still have good thread and seemed to be in very good shape. The thing that scared me the most was that there was no warning. The following week I took the truck to sears and had a complete set of new tires cooper brand installed. The tires that were on the truck a 2000, f-350 were steeltex a/t, lt265/75r16 123/1200 m/s load range e.

The rescue vehicle had traveled approximately three miles when the drivers side inside dual wheel suffered a tread separation of 25% of the circumference of the tire. The rescue had to discontinue its emergency response. I have contacted the local dealer, who is contacting cooper directly. The local dealer has told me that this will be treated as a "road hazard" from my observation it appears to be a manufacturing defect that caused the separation, and I have concerns in regards to a simillar occurence with the remaining tires as this is an emergency vehicle and the lives of my crews and the public rely on this vehicle being reliable. Please contact me. (dot number: up11c1a506 tiresize: lt 245/75r).

Tire size is lt225/75r16 m/s, I could not fit it in the box. The tire tread seperated while on the highway and the tread caused aporx $1000 damage to the wheel well and cabinet next to the wheel. (dot number: vd1l1xd348 tiresize: lt225/75r1).
The left front steer tire tread just came off - the tire was still holding air and did not go flat until the motorhome slowed down and got off the highway - all that's left was steel cord all the way around - these tires should not be used on motorhomes as could kill a lot of families. What should I do with the tire? should I replace all 6? should firestone replace them ? there is about 5000 miles on this set of tires. (dot number: vdil1xd329 tiresize: lt22575r16).
Blow out and tread separation on a 2000 Ford E-350 ambulance with patient on board. Ambulance is owned by hospital. I heard that this model of tire is also under investigation. Feel free to call, thanks. (tiresize: 225/75r16)( dot number: tire size: 225/75r16 ).
Right rear tire separated at side seam causing the tire to deflate and made it hard to control the RV. The defective tire was properly inflated at 80 psi as required by Ford and the RV instructions. The right front tire seems to be wearing improperly. We are planning on a cross-country trip this month and I'm hesitant to drive on these tires as the tread could separate the same as this defective tire. (tiresize: lt225/7516)( dot number: tire size: lt225/7516 ).
After driving on pavement, air temp 71 degrees for 45 minutes - the tire just came apart. There is a gaping hole down the center. We had another steeltex on the same vehicle loose its tread 8 weeks ago, and reported it here. This is the second firestone steeltex orginal tire on the RV that has fallen apart. We even had it inspected three days ago, and the pressure checked. Because it is an RV the weight is considerable. The original tires just can't seem to hold up. Now we are wondering if the vehicle is safe to drive. We had it inspected by a firestone dealer three days ago, and obviously they couldn't diagnose what was about to happen. This is very scary, a 12,000 pound vehicle loosing tires, twice in 8 weeks. (dot number: vd1l1xd279 tiresize: lt25575r16).
