General tires - ameritrac mts lt 235/85R16 - on 9/23/2010 we were driving on I-75 in 2004 Ford F-350 Super Duty dually - the left front treat separated from the tire, the tire didn't loose tire pressure, but it came apart. It damaged the left front fender, front bumper, and driver side door. These tires had over half of the tread remaining. Luckily we were able to keep control of the vehicle.

F-350 4WD 8-cyl

  • 38,000 miles
On 6-13-09 I had a tire explode on my 2004 Ford F350 Super Duty pickup truck while driving on the northeast extension of the pa turnpike. We were pulling a 5th wheel trailer loaded with atv's and my husband and I had our 11 year old niece and 12 year old nephew with us. We struck a minivan. The minivan incurred damage to passenger side rear quarter panel. Our truck incurred damage to the driver's side front quarter panel, the driver's side front door, the front bumper, the ABS sensor, and the running board. The tire was sent to a forensic lab and the report indicates that the general americtech tire was not only manufactured incorrectly but was also designed incorrectly. I had to replace 7 tires on my truck as I felt the ameritech's were not safe.

We have a Ford F350 4X4 dully with general ameri-trac tires. Was traveling on I-20 interstate with cruise set on 70. All of a sudden it started snowing rubber. Though tire never went flat, it caused $2,540 in damage to the vehicle, and a very scared woman whose presence of mind averted a life-threatening calamity the tires are the original with plenty of tread still on the tire. There were no injuries. Load range E LT235/85R16. Is there a recall on these tires? by our inspection, and our customary maintenance of these tires and vehicle, no cause for this near calamity existed, except the tire itself.
