CHANGING ALL MY FIRESTONES EVEN THOUGH THEY ARE NOT ON ANY RECALL LISTS!!!!!
On my Ford Crown Victoria car are Firestone's Affinity Touring 52 tires which have only 9,250 miles on them! Size: P225/60R16 975 M&S tires. These are 16 inch tires. Tonight, I was merely backing up very slowly and my right rear tire grazed the curb which had a city sewer drain hole in it. I heard a crackle AND POP and instantly had a flat rear tire. The side of this tire looks like someone took a knife and cut a big slit in it. This tire is ruined totally from grazing a CURB just backing up slowly! There was no sharp protrusions sticking out from the curb. I am replacing all remaining tires with Goodyear right away. THESE FIRESTONE AFFINITY TIRES ARE NOT ON ANY RECALL LIST!
I have friends who have had Firestone blowouts in their cars back in the 1970's. Apparently Firestone has had a problem for a long time that has just gotten worse recently. God Bless You and especially all the families who have suffered Firestone accidents and deaths. Lets all pray there are no more incidents.
