Recall Overview

Stuart from Lakeland, TN writes:

My 97 Ford F250 was equipped with Firestone Steeltex R4S tires of size 235 85 R16. Since owning the truck I have had 2 seperate incidents of "Sidewall failure". The Firestone dealer told me that, without a doubt, I must have hit or run over something in the road". I never saw, felt or heard any noise other than a loud explosion as the air suddenly relieved. Fortunately the tire failures occured on the rear tires which further backups up my claim of "Failure". It seems the front tires would most likely suffer from foreign object damage than the front!!!!
