  • 45,000 miles
2002 Cadillac Escalade spare tire fell off the under-carriage as I was turning into my home driveway this is a full size tire and rim approx 50# if this would have happen on the expressway or major traffic route someone could have been hurt. Took the car to the dealership and they advised they never saw anything like this before and had know idea how to repair it. This spare is hung by a bolt and twisted cable both which rusted thru this is what caused the tire to fall off. My car is maintained by the dealer and has 45,000 miles on it fyi.
