Ford Asks Manufacturers to Modify Tire Designs

Ford routinely directs tire manufacturers to modify their tire designs, or modifies recommended inflation pressures, so that tire attributes will cover up a multitude of vehicle performance flaws. Someone should ask Nasser how many times Ford has directed tire manufacturers to modify their tire designs, or has used its huge purchasing power to force the tire manufacturers to alter inflation recommendations, for the sole purpose of changing tire performance characteristics so that vehicle performance flaws discovered at, or near vehicle launch could be covered up. Explorer isn't the only Ford vehicle line where this has happened.
