Yesterday (6/29/98) I went to my car to begin my journey from Santa Monica to San Diego.
I discovered the right rear tire was flat. When AAA arrived to change the tire, I discovered that the inside part of the tire had come apart. The tread part had separated from the sidewall portion. It was unrepairable.
Not having time (at 6:00AM) to get a new tire, I proceeded to San Diego without a good spare tire.
By, Carlsbad (just North of San Diego) my left front tire exploded. It literally came apart. After a harrowing experience of regaining control of my car and managing to get to the side; I disovered the following.
The entire tread portion of the tire had separated from the tire. It was if I had purchased some cheap retreads (which I didn't).
I can get the serial number of the tire that blewout at home; however, the tire that disintegrated on the freeway, I only have the tread band.
These tires had approximately 33,000 miles on them.
I am going to Goodyear (in San Diego) to see about an adjustment. I do not want anymore Aquatreads.
sincerely, Gerry Ramirez
