Ondajob114My 1994 Ford Explorer has Firestone tires on it. They are original equipment, and until Sunday, 11-21-99, I thought they had several months of wear left. On the freeway, at approximately 60 MPH, the ENTIRE TREAD SURFACE PEELED OFF! It caused significant damage to my car, and almost got my family into a terrible collision. Any similar experiences? Please e-mail me,


tiretech2Don, The type of tire failure you have discriped is more often caused by low psi. The tire may have started out low or had something get into the tire while you where driving. This will cause the tire to run hot and than in some cases blow apart. At this time of the year tire psi will go down with drops in tempature. Check your tires in the morning and see what you have compared to the heat of the day. I feel checking your tires once a week the best way of preventing failures like yours.
