When I bought this vehicle used off of pinnacle Ford in nicholasville ky, (now has 36,700 miles) I had no idea that I was buying a truck with the so-called "death wobble." Long story short I havent been unable to drive this truck on any long trips and badly dread it when I have to be on any road with a speed limit over 55 because once I begin to hit 60 M.P.H. the front end will start to shake so bad that the words scary, unsafe, and embarrassing are understatements. I have been waiting patiently for the Ford "death wobble" recall for quite some time, but I just cant wait anymore; I was recently advised to file this report. I am including a picture of one of my front tires that was not so long ago new, and they are both chopped so bad that if you run your hand across the tread your hand will stop due to the extreme unlevelness of the tread with no exaggeration whatsoever. Please, please, force Ford to recall this truck. I own a concrete construction business, and if I were to mess up someones new driveway with no safety issues involved, I would be expected to fix it asap, and for the integrity of myself and my business I should be expected to fix it. It truly amazes me how big corporotions can screw up their product that we pay way too many thousands of dollars for these days and even with extreme safety issues beyond just a faulty product sold, they can literally can get by with causing wrecks, deaths, and selling faulty unsafe products; they clearly get by with what the average person or small business owner could not and cannot.

I was traveling at a speed of 65 mph down interstate 5 South in castaic, ca. The truck front end suddenly began to shake violently. It was only when I slowed down and pulled over when the shaking stopped and the truck drove normally. I later came to realize I had experienced what many call the 'death wobble'. I immediately took the truck to my local Ford dealer for repairs

While driving on the highway at 70 mph had a catastrophic blow out. The low tire pressure warning light came on and within seconds the tire blew. Also after inspecting the other tires noticed a chunk of tread missing on another tire.

When driving on road/interstate over 60 mph and hit a rough spot in the road the front end shakes violently. Almost loosing control of the vehicle. This happens very often. Shakes so bad you need to slow down to about 30 mph before it stops. Not safe.

Bought 2016 F 250 used from dealer now I have tire tread issues. Wife and 2 children use this vehicle as a daily driver because we thought it would be safe. Now not so sure. All tires are original and in good shape until we noticed a chunk of thread starting to separate from tire.
