The contact owns a 2002 Ford Mustang with federal super steele tires, line size 245/45 R17. The contact stated that the front driver side and rear passenger side tires split along the sidewall. Within 4,000 miles the same failure occurred on the front passenger and rear driver side tires. The manufacturer replaced the tires every time the failure occurred yet the contact stated that the tires were replaced with defective tires. The contact was concerned because the tires failed at less then 20,000 miles. The VIN was not available. The failure and current mileage was 64,000.

I have Goodyear Eagle ls tires on my 2002 Ford Mustang that keep blowing out on the inside and shredding the tire. In 3 years I have purchased 4 tires and had another blowout last night that shreds the inside of the tire. I had just had this tire checked on the 8th of April and the tire was fine.

On Nov. 3rd of this year my son had a blow out with one of the new Eagle ls tires. He was pulling into a driveway and hit the curb with his front right tire. He took the tire to a Goodyear dealer and told him what had happened. The dealer told him that hitting the curb caused the tire to blow. This tire had only 2341 miles on it and I do not think that hitting a curb while entering a parking lot should cause this tire to blow. This past weekend I was looking over the other tires and found a bulge on the left front tire. I would like to know if you have received any other compliants about this tire. The tire which I am asking about is the P225/55R16 94T S1 Eagle ls. Can you please get back to me with any information that you may have on this tire.
