Goodyear tire problem resolved
I received a check in the mail today from Goodyear for $5,900 to cover the cost of repairs and a replacement tire. With the information from this forum I called Goodyear and got a claim number, took the tire carcass to a local Goodyear store, got an estimate for repairs and sent photos of damage. A couple of weeks later I got an email with Claim Release to sign and sent it back. There were no questions or hassles involved. A thumbs up for handling the problem, a thumbs down for manufacturing an unsafe product.
