1986 Renault Alliance - 1XMDM960XGK- S. Charleston, OH: December 29th, 2000
Tire failed while driving at 55mp. I purchased the tires on 9/07/99 with 120,000 miles on the odometer. The failure occurred at 127,800 miles. I returned the tire to sears automotive in springfield, ohio on 12-29-00. The mangager of the store, mr. David sexton stated that the failure was caused by a "road hazard. " i wanted to make sure that the failure was not a defect. He said a defect would show during the first thousand miles of driving. I disagreed. I want to make sure that the tires are not defective. With all the problems surrounding firestone i am leary. Coupled to this sears past reputation with thier automotive division makes me even more leary. I have attempted to contact the district manager and have left messages with sears consumer service division. I did have the tire replaced on 12-29-00 at a different tire store. I did save the tire for inspection if need. I am not certain that it is a defect but want to rule out that possibiltiy. Have their been any other reports on this same tire or sears. *ak (tiresize: p15580r13)( dot number: tire size: p15580r13 )
