Treadwright Fail

I was driving down the road about 50-55mph. The truck started to shimmy, so I stop check things out and eveything look normal. I was kinda like wtf is this road really that rippled. smh.

I went about 5 more miles and BOOOOOOOOOOM! Front drivers tire explods! wtf hang on!

I made my way to the grassy median in the middle because that was the closest place to go.

here is what the tire looked like.



These tires have about 8000miles or so. Treadwright will be hearing from me in the am.

Looks like a tire carcass failure. I speculate Treadwright missed pre-existing flaws on the tire carcass during inspection, before they molded new tread rubber onto it.

Wow, glad that you are OK Joe. Like you, this is the first failure like that for the Treadwrights that I have seen. It will be interesting to see how they handle it.

If there is no other evidence of under-inflation or off road damage (uneven wear, chunks torn out of tread lugs, etc.), the tire mfr would have little to argue about.
