I had a 1996 Eddie Bauer Explorer 4x4 that I bought new. The Firestones was a joke. It was not a Ford design issue. The tires sucked. I had one seperate tread, and one that had sidewall problems. I put a set of Michelins on it after 20,000 miles, way before the tire problem ever surfaced. Their was nothing poorly designed about the Explorer, it was one of the best vehicles I ever owned. Just crappy tires and stupid people that couldn't navigate an suv around a curve.

You forget that that issue was ford dealerships putting 26 PSI in tires. That was more of a dealership error then tire issue. The destination at is a 100% different tires with a very good track record. Besides other tire brands have had issues long ago like those and make great tires now.

Nope... but they look just like yours.

Mounted them on the stock 18" rims. Now that means I HAVE TO buy a summer set up. I have decided that it will be the SRT reps, OR Boss 338's in black. Anyway, we have some big snow build up on our street and the COOPERS really make mince meat of the snow. Love 'em!
