Been in the auto industry since JAN of 2000 and I have tires do strange things. I have seen more GY's come apart more than any other tire.

Hope your dealer will warranty it or help you with it. Hopefully they find no foreign object (nail/screw) in the tread, If they do than its prob gonna be on you.

I was riding on the interstate going about 75mph. Glad it wasn't a front tire. I've never seen a new tire do that! I only had about 2,000 miles on the truck that I bought new. I run about 40lbs of pressure in my tires.

I hit a piece of metal in the road last week,put a 2 inch gash in my tire,less than 10k miles and truck is less than a year old.cost me $375.00 to replace the tire.the dealer said there is no tire road hazard warranty from dodge.i purchased a platinum bumper to bumper service contract,dealer said that does not cover road hazard either.hmmm,always thought the tire went between the bumpers.

My dealer said the same thing. The warranty does not cover the tires. He said he would check with the local Goodyear dealer to see what they could do. They replaced the tire. I lucked out.

tires are considered a "wear" item.

True, but so are brakes and if they randomly exploded I would expect them to be replaced under warranty

my dealer, Elm Grove Dodge in Wheeling, WV wouldn't even talk to me about a tire failure. Said they don't deal with tire problems yet it says Service/Tires on their building. I also bought the extended warranty. I will never deal with them again except my three years of free oil changes. BTw only had 5000 miles on the truck.
