MY SON WAS DRIVING OUR TRUCK OFF THE OFF RAMP OF THE MASS PIKE IN NATICK WHEN THE CAR STARTED TO SHAKE. HE PULLED INTO A GAS STATION ON ROUTE 30 AND FOUND THE TIRE WAS COMPLETELY TORN OFF THE RIM ON THE OUTSIDE. IT IS A SCARY SITE AND IF IT HAPPENED ON THE MASS PIKE WHO KNOWS WHAT MIGHT HAVE HAPPENED. I'VE NEVER SEEN SUCH DAMAGE TO A TIRE IN MY LIFE IT TOTALY RIPED OFF THE WHOLE SIDE. WE TOOK PICTURES WE CAN SEND IF NEED BE. I WENT TO THE FIRESTONE DEALER TODAY ON A DONUT OF A TIRE REPLACING. WE WERE TOLD TO COME BACK WHEN THE MANAGER IS THEIR. WE WILL GO BACK ON TUES. 8/22/2000( DOT NUMBER: W2HYFRP097 TIRE SIZE: P215/70R14 )
