Complaint - Tires, Wheels

WHILE COMING TO A STOP IN A PARKING LOT THE TIRE VALVE STEM BLEW OFF, COMPLETELY DEFLATING THE TIRE. SIX WEEKS LATER THE SAME THING OCCURRED TO ANOTHER WHEEL. IT APPEARS THAT VALVE STEM CORRODED JUST BELOW THE CAP. THE PRESSURE INSIDE THE TIRE THEN BLEW OUT THE SCHROEDER VALVE RESULTING IN A QUICK DEFLATE OF THE TIRE. IF THIS HAD HAPPENED AT HIGHWAY SPEED IT COULD HAVE RESULTED IN LOSS OF STEERING AND POSSIBLE ACCIDENT OR PERSONAL INJURY. BOTH TIRE VALVE STEMS HAVE BEEN REPLACED, BUT NOW WONDERING IF THE REMAINING TWO NEED TO BE REPLACED. SUCH A DESIGN OF THIS PRODUCT IS A POTENTIAL FATAL ACCIDENT WAITING TO HAPPEN.
