We have all read about trailer tire failures and many of us have experienced them. While it is interesting and perhaps helpful to note and discuss these failures on the forums it would be even better to have them included into the government’s formal database. As individual consumers we have little power to cause the improvement of the tires but, perhaps, with enough evidence the government enforcement agencies might take some action.

If you wish to report tire failures, which the government calls a Safety Complaint, go to this web address and complete the online form.

WHY REPORT? Perhaps a reason that failures of ST tires ( and others) continue is that no failure reporting is being done. For instance, searching the DEFECTS AND RECALLS database for Goodyear ST20575R15 tires reveals that only 2 defects have ever been reported and the most recent one was June 24, 2005. With that record, it is no mystery that no government action would be taken to investigate why so many Goodyear ST tires were failing. Report your failures and maybe someday we will get better tires!

That's a pretty good site at first glance and i need to sit down with it a little longer.
