While driving at highway speed with a P/U camper on my 1 ton P/U. the right rear tire came apart damaging the bed of my truck and destroying my wheel. I had recently checked the tire pressure. The tire failed with the tread separating and side walls split in several places. The tire tread depth was 7/32" per perfection tire store manager. The tire had 37,851 miles on it.

Ram 3500 6-cyl

  • 40,000 miles
Aluminum valve stem/TPMS sensors on both front wheels corroded and failed at the same time causing two flat front tires and loss of steering. Proceeded to repair shop to have all (4) valve stems and (2) front tires replaced. Repair personnel informed us that this is an epidemic. According to them, in 2010, manufacturers became aware of this problem and began using rubber valve stem/TPMS sensors.
