Grand Cherokee 4WD

  • 38,000 miles
The contact owns a 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4WD. The vehicle has Goodyear Wrangler tires, size P235/70R16. The contact stated that the independent owner who sold the vehicle to the contact had brand new tires placed on the vehicle. At approximately 38,000 miles, the Goodyear tires began to experience tread separation. She noticed that the vehicle was not driving properly at speeds 50 mph and less. The tires were also separating from the hubcaps or rims and then flattened. The tire was repaired. Later, the second tire flattened. The tire was replaced with the spare tire that came with the vehicle. Three months later, she awakened to find that the tire was entirely flat. She placed air in the tire, but it remained soft. The failure mileage was 38,000 and current mileage was 45,000. Updated 09/10/08 updated 09/17/08.
