Goodyear treading hot water over RV tire probe lawsuit

AKRON, Ohio — Tire manufacturer Goodyear is in hot water in the wake of an investigation launched by federal safety officials on allegations that some older Goodyear motorhome tires are susceptible to fail and cause deadly crashes, according to Top Speed.

The probe is being conducted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which started its investigation after a court ordered the release of Goodyear data from lawsuits that had been previously sealed under court orders and confidential settlement agreements.

    I wish they would start an investigation into the tires they are putting on travel trailers and fifth wheels. We had three blowout in one day coming home from NM September 1st. Thank god we weren’t far from the park we stayed at and we weren’t on the open road for the first two blowouts. The third one made us loose our rental space for the night and if my brother hadn’t been behind us with his trailer we would have been stranded on the road. We had to spend the night at a little drive through park in the truck. Our trailer is only 2 1/2 years old. $1100.00 for new tires. Someone will get killed with these tires.
