RE: Truck Tire issues

The tires are LT275/65R20 Michelin. Mine were good until 34,000 miles. Then in three thousand miles three blew out

RE: Truck Tire issues

In 1998 I bought a new Dodge Ram 2500 and it came with Michelin E Rated tires. The first trip I took was empty and 2,000 miles to & from Florida. Tire pressure was ok as I am in a habit of checking tire inflation at every stop. We were on our way back and just crossed the Kentucky / Tennessee line, driving about 75 MPH at around midnight when my right rear tire blew! The tread had separated, and took out the exhaust, break-lines and the right side of the of the bed! After we got it to a dealership and looked at the remaining tires... they were all cracked where the tread meets the sidewall. I contacted Michelin and they would not do one thing for me... and repairs in 1998 were over $6,800.00. I fought and fought with them and never got one red cent from them... I would not buy a Michelin tire ever again. RVman / John From the info you provided you should have had everything paid for by your insurance company. They should have gone after Michelin for damages. I agree. Good Year once paid over Four thousand dollars for damage to my fifth wheel when a Good Year Marathon tire separated and the tread came off.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Izzie has been amazing. The night Fella almost died Izzie curled up at his head and stayed there all night letting Fella know he really cared.

Truck Tire issues

I have a 2012 F350 with Michelin tires on it. Tire size is LT27560R20. everything was fine until 34,000 miles and then the tread separated on three of the tires within three thousand miles of each other. I have always kept the tires rotated, balanced with the correct air pressure, never before have I had Michelin tires fail like this. After talking with several people I have heard the same story, tires failing with tread separation at about 25- 35,000 miles. Anyone else with this experience with Michelin truck tires? Michelin gave me 75% back on the cost of the tires, but the expense of the service people coming out to change the tires was on me. I found out the jack that came with the F350 was a joke. Let me add that the right front tire blew out on Interstate 64 running 70 MPH. The others blew out just sitting there after I felt something wrong and pulled over to inspect the tires.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. Good luck MetalGator with the cone. The bootie is also a good idea. Fella wore a bootie on his bad foot, it didn't take long for him to appreciate it. Bad night as we were up at four with Sue having low blood sugar. When it drops down into the forty's she doesn't want help but can't figure out for her self what to do. It can get kind of touchy as she will get aggressive and angry. So I do what I can and wait. Sometimes I have to wait until she is goes out and then give her the shot, she hates that as it makes her feel sick afterwards. But this morning she is fine, I am tired and ready to go back to bed. The Old Fella Rally is just a month away. I am so looking forward to this year's rally. The thoughts of cooler weather and sitting by the campfire at night is really appealing to me. I got the tire situation on the truck handled yesterday so hopefully we are good to go for a while. The fur gang is fine. Izzie was so glad to see us come home. He gets lonely and looks for company. I watch him on the house cameras going from room to room, jumping up on the couch and chairs trying to get comfortable. He is getting old and arthritic you can see it when he walks or tries to jump up on something. He is still a sweet boy as far as cats go and love attention. I hope all is well with everyone and things are going the way you want. I have to close for now so I will wish everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them. Sandy, any news of the dog at the campground in Michigan?

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. Metalgator the last time I can remember blowing out so many tires is when I was much younger on the racing circuit. Believe me I am not racing the big rig and I have tried to take care of the tires on the truck and camper. Today I am going to see a Michelin tire so called expert to get his or her opinion and try to get some help with getting a new tire on the truck. The left rear is the original tire that came with the truck from the factory. I am getting it off ASAP so it doesn't blow out and leave us stranded on the side of the road. Okay I have a lot to do today so I am going to close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug fir me and be sure to tell someone you love them.

RE: Old Fella Rally October 5-12 2015 Great Smoky Mountains

OMG! :E Richard, is it my imagination, or have you been having extraordinarily bad "on the road" luck the last year or so?:p That is why at my age I am thinking about retiring from the road. We sat for four hours yesterday until we could get going again. Lucky we had the generator so we could go into the camper and stay comfortable while we waited. Also that we were able to get to a safe place before the tire blew apart. I noticed the truck vibrating so I pulled into the gas station. I saw the bubble on the tire so I unhook the camper to get the weight off. When I pulled the truck from the camper is when the tire blew. I'm getting to old for this sort of thing. I am so glad we were in Augusta so I could get my son Scott to help. He works for a heavy equipment company that is always having to rescue trucks stuck on the road from tire mishaps so he was able to get us help. I will soon have four new tires on the F350, so maybe We will be safe for a while. The tires on the camper I took care of three years ago when I replaced the EOM tires with Good Year G614.

http://i153.photobucket.com/albums/s211/Levi449/pit%20stop%20sept%202%2015_zpswapfxduj.jpg Here we were parked at a gas station with the right rear wheel and tire off. We waited for fours to get back on the road. I cranked up the generator turned on the A/C. We ate lunch watched TV and took a nap.

Had the generator running so we could stay in the camper watching TV, eating lunch and taking a nap. We waited four hours to get back on the road. We got home at seven this evening

I changed my itinerary so I can stay an extra 3 days, until the 15th. I will be in the site right next to Richard. Great.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

This time I had enough warning to be able to pull into a gas station large enough for us to pull in and be out of the way . we are in Augusta so I called my son Scott and his company is coming to our rescue

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

There were two tires on the rear that I did not replace as they only had thirty four thousand miles on them. Michelin tires should last longer than that.

Blew out another tire, stranded waiting for help

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. We are leaving Magnolia Springs this morning heading home. We have to stop in Waynesboro to take care of something before leaving Sandy looks like a sweet little fur baby. So glad you have a new friend. I have a lot to do so I had better get moving. Have a blessed day, be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell some one you love them.

I won't be able to stay the extra week, but I'll see if I can add a couple of extra days or so. Great

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Thank you all for the warm welcome. Today I find out how bad my foot is, I'm afraid if I can't use it my good leg will cause me problems. Already have trouble with it. I will check out the cat thread, when I get a chance. Afraid I'm going to have a lot of time to read. Prayers going up for Shadow57
