Sidewall blowout at 65 mph... NOT allot of confidence in them after this!

well I'm not sure on age bought them from a member on here...Plenty of meat left on the tire I would say 50-60% left anyway...He was in ohio..So I'm not sure if climate had anything to do with it. It was pretty scary since I had 2 passengers with me. I'm thinking what if I was doing 80 or 90 or more...could have been a much worse outcome.

It's not always a bad tire it could be owner issues such as sitting or not properly inflated I'm not saying its you just tires in general either way it a very scary feeling I had one blow on my 150 a few years ago I think there was a hole in my seat where my butt hole puckered up glad no one was hurt

I'm telling ya!..It could have been a freak thing but if you google it there are many reviews I read in reference with same issue..I replaced with the same to the tune of $420 so I will see what happens between now and when it's time for 4 new..Thankfully didn't bend or break the wheel!..can always be worse so I'm thankfull it wasn't!

I used to sling rubber for a company, for many years, and have seen blowouts from all sizes, types, ratings, and manufacturers. I have also experienced some personally (reason I have the flat bed now, destroyed entire driver side of the bed). There are alot of factors that can cause a tire to blow out, although some manufacturers seem more prevalent at times.

Have had 37x13.50-18 MT ATZs on my truck for 45k miles and never had an issue. Just saying.... Could have been a bad tire or road debris caught it just right. Under-inflation or Over-inflation most likely being the cause.

Hello.... I have been a lurker here for a bit but I just wanted to support over200 and his post.
This happened today at somewhat the same speed as over200. Blown sidewall, I am thankful I did not seriously injure anyone. I was in the slow lane, however, I am not so sure that I would have been so lucky in the faster lanes with the traffic...
Tires were purchased May 2011....lots of meat left on them rotated every 5000 km. I am certainly not a hater of MT`s, I love their tire, but this makes me a little nervous at speed on the highway....

I am dealing with them now and I will report back with the result whether it be good or bad....

ZMANN thank you for the response.

My biggest concern is that the integrity of my tires are safe.

If I had a load in tow or there was a motorcyclist on my right, cyclist, pedestrian, small car or any combination of this the result would have been disastrous or fatal. As soon as you loose one of the two fronts, steering is pretty much shot and the truck is dives hard to the right or left....
