Passing along something I read

Cruising my Facebook stuff this morning, I read this post by someone claiming to have 2 Endurance "blowouts" on 2 tires with less than 1000 miles.
This is the first blowout claim I have heard of. Im not sure, but the image she posted looks like impact damage to me. Maybe someone can chime in on this.
Worth following.

Not on FB -- can you ask her to post the DOT dates of mfg., and serial numbers, for those two tires? May have been a bad batch IMO, and the info would be helpful for everyone to know.

Thanks for the heads up.

Reviewing the posters history, she reports having 3 blowouts this year, with very few miles traveled.
Im skeptical, , to say the least.

She reports less than 1000 miles travelled since May.
We will see of the flood gates open!

There's so many variables it's impossible to narrow it down to the tire, unless it happens to you and you have all the facts. Road condition, inflation, speed, driving skill, (does she run over objects?). Did a truck just drop a box of screws in the road?
The data over a long period of time with many users will give you a trend. "1000 drivers with GYM had 65 blowouts while the same number of drivers using GYE had 20 blowouts." Then you can make an informed conclusion.

My resent visit to Jackson Center I took AS up on their offer to upgrade to 16" Michelins. My Goodyear Endurance tires had 14,700 miles and only 5/32 tread left after running them at max psi of 80 for about a year. I agree that since the factory went to the Goodyear Endurance tire blowout complaints have diminished. However, I still wanted more comfort room running down the highway. I think my decision was good, I now run 72 psi on Load range E and found a better pull leaving Ohio. I can't quantify the value yet, but previously had to have 9 popped rivets replaced while running 80 psi on the Endurance tire during my visit to Ohio. We will see.

The post was posted on a number Facebook pages. Here is a photo from those posts of one of the tires that blow out. Appears to me to be side wall damage from road trash or a real heavy curb hit.

Does not appear to me that the brand or type of tire had anything to do with this situation - as much as some folks would like to suggest it did

If you read her Facebook post she says she blew out to just like this in less than a thousand miles.

There is damage to the exterior of the side wall just above the "G" in the photo. No tire is immune from road hazards.

If there were problems internally there would be no external damage to the side wall skin.
