Default Goodyear Tires

This is my first post! I love my 2012 Ram Express - but I'm thinking the tires suck! I had a rear tire blowout on I-80 yesterday at 75mph. The tire only has 2,000 miles on it! It split wide open from one side of the rim to the other.

Wow, that sucks. From the looks of it something tore through it, sure you didn't pick something up off the road ? I know the goodyears are not the best on the road but I've had zero issues with them so far and have over 25k kms on them now.

I didn't see anything on the highway that I could have hit. I haven't had the truck off-road yet. I took it down to the local dealer where I bought it and they said they were going to let the local Goodyear service center take a look at it. The dealer told me that my warranty on the truck doesn't cover tires.

Trust me you hit something! The brand of the tire would not matter!

Let us know what Goodyear says, would really like to know. I had a similar experience with my winter tires (not Goodyear), but it was a metal plate that tore it open, looked just the same way

^^^^ Wow she is a beauty, thanks for sharing the pic. Also, the goodyear tires must have some kind of road hazard warranty. Please let us know what they say and good luck.

Thanks - I haven't started any mods yet other than an AEM dryflow drop in air filter.
