1999 Ford F250 with Firestone steeltex tires. Tread came off left rear tire. An inspection showed tread was separating on rt front tire. Sent tire to Firestone and got a form letter about abuse of tires (under inflated, over inflated). Same letter Firestone used when failures of Ranger tires were occurring. I have the oil changed every 6000 miles and have tire pressure checked. I also check pressure myself. I also rotated tires as suggested by Ford. Tires had good tread and wear patterns. These tires are defective.
