Does anyone know of blowout problems on the Uniroyal Liberator A/T ---LT265/75 R16. I had rear tire blowout and lost control almost killing me the truck and my boat. My truck and boat were damaged bad. What should I do? email me please
Thanks

Answer
James,

The National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) doesn't show any reports of failures for this tire.

What to do?

First, file a report on NHTSA's website:

https://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/ivoq/online.cfm

Second, file a complaint with Uniroyal.  Be sure to tell them you have damage to your vehicle and your boat.  Uniroyal will most likely ask to see tire and have you fill out a report and obtain estimates to fix the vehicle(s).

You can contact them here:
