the right front tire developed a bubble in the sidewall on three different tires (the original and the two original equipment replacements). the first occurred at 3,956 miles, the second at 4,104 miles and the most recent at 12,136 miles. acura did not want to take responsibility after the first instance and referred me to michelin tire who in turn referred me to a tire dealer (etd discount tires). the tire dealer said that the fault was not with the manufacture, but with me. after the second tire failure, the tire dealer advised me to purchase a road hazard warranty. good thing rthat i did as it offset some of the cost of the third tire replacement tire. while two instances may be a coincidence, three tire similar tire failure on the same wheel are not. the problem is with the manufacture or design of that particluar tire or the car, or both. i have contacted both, michelin has sent me a $71 check, which only partially offst the costs involved. in all three instances, the bubble on the tire sidewall was pointed out to me by three different people. of major concern, there could have been a serious road accident if i was not made aware of the problem and did not relace the tires.

second tire to develop sidewall bubble under normal driving conditions in under 6000 miles. michelin contacted and responded that "this is normal road hazard." failed tires are new "low profile" tires. previous vehicles used over the same roads with higher profile tires did not develop sidewall bubbles when subjected to the same driving pattern. are these tires safe?*ak

two tire blow outs in 4 months. first tire had bubble caused by non level road surface which would not qualify as a divot or pothole. second tire completely blew out after hitting rough road at 40-50 mph and caused damage to rim totaling over 1000 dollars. completely inexcusable because tire pressure was adequate, car was serviced previous week and there were no defects at time of service. *cb

while driving, vehicle suffered a sidewall cut and sudden deflation of the right front tire. *la the consumer stated this was the third time the vehicle suffered sidewall damage, which required the replacement of the tires and wheels. the consumer believed the combination of the low profile tires and the design of the 17 inch wheels on a low speed roll of the wheel into a pothole can cause the tire to be pinched and cut or damaged by the rim of the wheel. the tire dealer and the acura dealer stated the tire failures were due to road hazards, however the consumer disagreed since the failure happened three times. *jb

we purchased four goodyear aquatred 3 tires in september 2000. since that date, three of the tires have failed (in september and december 2003; and march 2004). all three tires experienced a failure (a blowout) involving the sidewalls of the tires. we believe the high rate of failure in the sidewall area indicates a manufacturing defect. luckily, we were able to regain control of our vehicle during each of the blowouts, as we were traveling on an interstate highway at a high rate of speed on each occurrence. since the date of original purchase, we have placed only 33,101 miles on our vehicle to date. the aquatred 3 has an 80,000-mile warranty rating.*ak
