Default Goodyear Wrangler blow out....

Has anyone experienced a complete bead to bead blowout on Goodyear tires?? I had my front tire blow out at highway speed and it did a lot of damage to my truck. Estimated $1800 in repairs [ not including tire and rim], tried to google and search without much luck.

Any ideas on what could make this happen...sure would like to know if this is typical Goodyear stuff??? They want me to send them the tire for testing.

Wow... Pretty nasty. I've only had one blow out in my life and that was a rear tire on a Honda Accord. Luckily it didn't do any dmg to the car, but it sure shredded the tire. There wasn't much left.

No, but I had all 4 Firestone Wilderness AT's blow out on my last Tacoma before 20,000 miles. Toyota wouldn't warrantee and Goodyear said it was road hazzard. I believe the GY Duratrac's are actually very good tires. GY SRA's and HP's not so much.

That's alit if damage. I have never had a tire blow out that bad. I had one of the 22's on my trailblazer go but the nankangs I had held together and even saved the rim. Sorry to see so much damage from a tire. These Goodyear's they put in the rams are trash.

I had a similar blowout on my driver's side rear tire after owning my truck about a week. The tear in my tread was almost 3" long. I was only moving 15 mph or so when it happened so no damage to anything on my truck. I'm over 12K miles and haven't had a problem since, but I look forward to the day when I decide to replace them.

Default Blowout?

Was your TPMS working? No tire just blows out unless it is very old. Only 2 things could cause what you described. 1) driving over an object that cut your tire causing rapid deflation or 2) An air leak causing low tire pressure that caused your tire to overheat, delaminate and at highway speed gave you the impression of a "Blowout." No tire could have prevented what happened. Don't blame Goodyear, they are the best tire for your truck. Hope your insurance covers your loss.

Yes the tire pressure system was working fine, I didn't see anything on the road when it blew [sunny, dry pavement]. Goodyear is going to test the tire, and they might cover the damages [fingers crossed].

I have never seen a tire go like this one did...ever, so I was just wondering if anyone else had experienced this.
