I have 4 original Firestone tires [FR680] P215/70/R15 tires that have splits in side walls by tread areas, and they also have bulges in sidewall areas. Only 25000 mi. On them. I feel that I need to replace them before we have a major blow out and accident by these visible problems. With 3 children I cannot afford an accident caused by these tires. I will be keeping old tires. I went on the web sight and saw that similar problems are happening to other people"?"

During normal driving conditions (no rain, snow, hazards) our right rear tire failed. The tread completely separated from the tire destroying the rim ABS harness cable and other for a total of $2000 damage. No injuries. The tires have very little wear (9000 miles). I immediately replaced all the tires with another brand. The catastrophic failure of the tire concerns me and believe the tire to be faulty. I would like to have the tire analized by an independent lab to let and to give their opinion of why the tire failed. Is there a indiependent investigation lab in my area who could assist me with this problem? I'd appreciate your response. (dot number: W2mb3bcb08 tiresize: 21570R1597)

My daughter was driving down the road and the tire popped. The noise was as loud as a gun shot. The tire pulled the car to the right side. She hit another car as a result.
