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).

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).

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.

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).

Consumer states that his camper van conversion has not had a smooth ride due to tires. The tire make an oscillating noise which makes the consumer think the tread is about to separate. The vehicle was taken to a for dealer but they were unable to be balanced. In the opinion of the technician the tires were too far out of tolerance. One of the tires could not be balanced therefore goodyear replaced it. The consumer read several article about an agreement between NHTSA and goodyear to replace 200000 tires on 15 passenger vans equipped with light truck load range e tires for model years 1996 to 2000. The consumer believes the camper conversion should be included in the replacement.
