Explorer Sport Trac

  • 20,000 miles
While driving on the highway, the tire blew up due to a nail embedded in the tire. The tire was ripped away from the rim. The spare was placed on the vehicle and then driven to the dealer where the truck was purchased. The tire was deemed defective as a nail embedded in the tire should not cause it to rip away from the rim.
