Complaint - Tires

I HAVE A 2002 VOLVO S60 EQUIPPED WITH PIRELLI P6 235/45 R17'S AS OEM OPTION. I HAVE LESS THAN 25,000 MILES ON MY CAR AND I HAVE REPLACED 3 OF THESE TIRES ALREADY. THE FIRST ONE BLEW OUT WITH LESS THAN 5,000 MILES DRIVEN, THE SECOND ONE AT 18,500 AND THE LAST ONE, WHICH ALMOST COST ME TO LOSE CONTROL OF MY VEHICLE ON A MAJOR HIGHWAY, WITH 22,500 DRIVEN MILES. ALL THREE FAILURES WERE ON THE SIDEWALL OF THE TIRE AND NONE COULD BE REPAIRED. THE P6'S SUPPOSEDLY COME WITH 50,000 MILES WARRANTY ON THEM. VOLVO CUSTOMER SERVICE CLAIMS FAILURES ARE DUE TO ROAD CONDITIONS IN NE USA AND ALSO DUE TO THE FACT THAT THESE ARE "HIGH PERFORMANCE TIRES": THEY SEEM TO FORGET THAT TIRE SAFETY IS THE BASIC PERFORMANCE CRITERIA. I DID SOME RESEARCH ON THE INTERNET AND OTHER "HIGH PERFORMANCE TIRES" DO NOT SEEM TO FAIL AS OFTEN AS PIRELLI P6'S. I'M CONVINCED THAT THESE TIRES ARE JUNK AND I WILL REPLACE ALL FOUR BEFORE WINTER DRIVING CONDITIONS START.
