Recall Overview

Well I guess it's my turn. On 10-27-00 at about 10:30 PM we were on an interstate traveling about 70 mph. Without warning the left rear tire blew out. After stopping we noticed the sidewall separated from the tread. Our truck is a 2000 Ford F-250 with 9000 miles. After some research I found several photographs of Steeltex tire failure and whoa, they look like our tire. The Firestone dealer said they aren't on the recall list so basically, oh well. It's just and investigation he said. I asked if they will wait as long to recall these tires as the others. I guess the death toll hasn't reached 100+ yet. Here's the photos, you judge for yourself.

Very angry,
