problem #3

May 012008


  • miles
The contact owns a 2000 Chevrolet Cavalier. The vehicle has yokohama allegiance iv tires, size P19570R14 (na). While driving 65 mph, the vehicle began making rattling noises. The contact was unable to determine the origin of the noise. During deceleration, the tread separated from the tire. He abrubptly stopped and exited the vehicle. He then noticed front end damage and it appeared that the front passenger side tire experienced complete tread separation. He took the tire to the manufacturer for inspection. It appeared as if the tire struck a curb and was not a manufacturer defect. The contact stated that he did not strike any curbs, which made it impossible for the tread to separate so suddenly. He believes this is due to a manufacturer defect in the tire. The failure mileage was unknown and the current mileage was 93,836.
