Firestone ATX Blowout In Jeep- Concerned

I HAD A BLOW OUT ON THE RIGHT FRONT OF MY JEEP. THE TIRE WAS A FIRESTONE ATX P215/75R15 MS. I AM STILL DRIVING ON THE THREE REMAINING TIRES. THEY STILL HAVE SUBSTANTIAL TREAD. I AM CONCERNED ABOUT THE SAFETY OF MY SELF AND MY GRANDCHILDREN. WE DRIVE 200 MILES ON THE WEEKENDS TO CAMP. IF I COULD AFFORD IT I WOULD BUY NEW TIRES ANY WAY. I DID NOT HAVE TREAD SEPERATION LIKE THE ONES DEPICTED, HOWEVER, THE TIRE BLEW OUT ON THE HIGHWAY WHERE THE TREAD AND SIDE WALL MEET. THANKS FOR YOUR INTEREST.
