I kept the Firestone tires, sold them to my nephew for $100 for his shop truck and he still has them on it with over 85,000 miles on the so-called bad tires. And yes, Ford paid for the new Michelins that only got 48,000 before they were worn out.
They don't call them exploders for nothin'

I've seen Toyota's, Nissan's, Ford's, Chevy's, Dodge's GMC, Honda's, and about any other car maker on fire before too. Any car can catch on fire.

My sister's 02 Lincoln Navigator, 80k miles, blown head gasket - Dealership wanted $4700 to fix
My best friends 05 F-150, 30k miles, blown head gasket - fixed under warranty

All stock vehicles, all properly maintained.
