Jacksonville, FL

goodyear tires: i purchased a 2002 dodge dakota in june, 2002. from day 1, i had trouble steering. after 3 trips to the dealer, i learned today that the goodyear tires were defective. i was told to immediately get new tires. the goodyear dealer was unresponsive to my need. it was obvious that he did not want to deal with defective tires. i went immediately to a michelin (sp) dealer and purchased 4 new tires. the michelin folks could insert a car key fully inside splits that were in my tires. i found news reports of abc investigating goodyear but obviously this is not getting to the public, either through the media or dealers. no incident but only because i took the truck in for an oil change and again complained about difficulty keeping the truck on the road. this complaint is sent in hopes that an investigation will start. i was told that the tires were from a "bad batch". how many tires are in a batch and where are the other tires? please respond and let me know the appropriate actions to take. i was most fortunate because i drive 70 mph on interstate-10 daily. the oil change may have prevented an accident and perhaps my life. respectfully, patricia hunter

Richmond, TX

owner of 2001 dodge dakota p/u, with wrangler st tires, at 10000 miles tires cracked around rim, goodyear store only adjusted the front ones, which he said were cracked. the rear, he called dry rotting, normal wear and tear. the front tires 8000 miles later are cracked. i called westchase tire and auto , in houston, texas and the store manager mentioned that it was strange that this had occured again. i checked the nhtsa site and found the same type of failures were being reported since several years back. i am positive that neither goodyear nor dodge will fess up to any problems with these tires. i just hope that loss of lives do not occur before action is taken. i will have these tires replaced once more and see how long they will last this time.*ak

Hampstead, NH

my 2005 dodge neon with 11k miles was purchased exactly one year ago new by me. the car came equipped with bf goodrich g-force t/a kdw 225/45zr16 tires. in moderately heavy traffic on rt 495n in haverhill, ma this afternoon, commuting home from my business, the car started shuddering and shimmying on the right hand front side. thinking i had a flat, i pulled off at the next exit and examined the tire. while still inflated, the tire bead had separated from tire itself as if almost delaminating. there was no observable damage to the rim, tire or any foreign object penetrations. i checked the tire pressure hot and it was 38 psi, (now 34.5 psi cold), well within manufacturer's specification. had this tire deflated at highway speed, i would have likely been injured if not killed and incurred significant property damage. i believe this tire has a manufacturing defect that needs to be investigated. i have taken several digital photos of the damage that i can submit. i have attempted to contact bfg and their website was unable to process my complaint due to a "server" error. *nm
