Silverado 2500

  • 59,000 miles
While driving on a highway the truck started to shake, we immediately pulled into a garage and had the tires checked out. It was determined that both the front passenger side tire and the rear tire, same side, had a tread separation. These tires had 18,000 miles on them. They should have lasted a lot longer. We were fortunate we were not traveling on an interstate at a high rate of speed.
