Skylark 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 75,170 miles
I purchased four new Bridgestone tires (19570S14 bs wthrfrcb) for my son's car (1996 Buick Skylark - 6 cyl) in April 2005 at sears at oxmoor center in louisville. On tue Aug 16, 2005, he was driving down a city street on his way to work when the right rear tire blew out, actually disintegrated. When I saw it, it had holes all around the sidewall, both inside and outside. I have never seen a tire like this. It looked like some one had shot at it with a machine gun. There were pieces of the tire along the street and in the parking lot where he stopped. My son put on the spare and we took it back to sears where it was replaced under warranty. Fortunately, he was not driving fast and was not on an expressway. This was my first experience with Bridgestone tires, and I do not intend to buy any more.
