problem #5

May 092004

Tahoe 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 54,350 miles
Tire tread separated from rest of tire while driving on freeway. As tread separated from right front tire, it struck the tubular running board, breaking the right front plastic step off. It also struck the right-side mirror, breaking the plastic shell and motorized adjustment controls, and struck right rear fender flare, causing it to become loose. At this point, it is unknown if other damage was caused, as I have yet to take it to service shop for estimate. Tire that separated was properly inflated prior to trip from yuma to phoenix. Tire brand was Firestone Wilderness AT, which was not lot # recalled in prior problems concerning Ford Explorer with Firestone tires. Vehicle was 2000 Chevy Tahoe 4-dr 4X4 Z71.

Tahoe 4WD

We did not have accident, but with news about Firestone wilderness tires we do no want to replace the bad tire with the same thing. We have ordered a different brand of new tires for the Tahoe because we think they must be unsafe. Is there any way that we can get an adjustment on the cost of the tires that we are removing?( dot number: W273 wmb tire size: P265/75R16 )
