Evan/Hoagrooood.<p>You gonna owe me for finding this for you. I take payment in blonde girls and beer.<p><br>Saw on on another forum that there's a silent recall on Goodyear Eagle F1 A/S tires due to cupping, noise, and uneven wear issues. Tire Rack will give 100% credit towards a new set of Goodyear or Dunlop tires as well as up to $100 credit to cover shipping and installation. People who purchased the tires back in 2007 and 2008 are getting the credit -- don't know if it also applies to people who purchased their tires this year since the manufacturing problem may have been corrected. Also, I saw that Goodyear is honoring the recall if you purchased the tires through someone other than Tire Rack, but you need to call them directly and complain.<p><br>Dear Mr. XXXX,<p>Thank you for your call and for placing a new order today.<p>Under a special accommodation from Goodyear, the Eagle F1 All Season tires you purchased from the Tire Rack in November 2007 are returnable for full credit.<p>· Purchase eligible replacement tires in the Goodyear Eagle tire line from the Tire Rack<br>· Tread depth of the original tires must be 2/32” or above<br>· Please provide the VIN# from the vehicle the tires were installed on.<br>· They cannot have any damage from mounting or dismounting<br>· Original tires must be returned at your expense to:<p>The Tire Rack<br>RA# xxxxx<br>7101 Vorden Parkway<br>South Bend, IN 46628

Besides hogarod has gone through enough alignments, inspections and what not to pretty much rule out the car itself.

Re: (hoagrod)

I guess it's a no-brainer if you bought from a Goodyear store, huh?? Mine were purchased in June of 08.

Discount tires replaced my GY A/S last December due to cupping they found after a low tire /. Not only did they replace the tires, but they gave me the road side service they normally charge for good dollar amount.<p>The cupping destoys the entire sidewall from what I can see.

Re: ATTN: Goodyear Eagle F1 A/S Tire "silent recall" (KillerB)

Great...I've got these, bought them in early 2008. I've only put about 10k on them so far. I don't think I have any cupping issues at all...but how would I check?

Re: ATTN: Goodyear Eagle F1 A/S Tire "silent recall" (djkronik57)

Excessive noise etc... Irregular ( read: NOT uneven/camber wear ) wear. <p>etc...<p>But if your tire rides nice, has no irregular/diagonal wear (feel the tread with an open hand across the tread), and you know you have a good alignement. <p>Hogarod, went through a few alignements and a couple of inspections of bushings and struts... so it was either the car or the tires at this point. A few months of agony as I recall.<p>I hope his are replaced, so he gets the nice ride he deserves...and I get a blondie throw into the deal.

I purchased my Goodyear Eagle F1 A/S 7/16/08 as Discount tire told me this tire just came out and had good reviews. I said I'll take them. First couple of weeks seemed ok and then road noise began to be noticeable. Discount tire suggest I get my car checked for alignment and suspension problems. Alignment was off slightly but nothing major. Currently I have right around 15k miles on my tires and it sounds like all four wheel bearings are going out on the car. Very noisy to say the least. Brought back to tire shop and noticed all four of my tires are cupping in the same spot, but some worse that others. So I went back to dealership to get alignment, struts, suspension and anything else that would affect tire wear. Everything was tight and up to spec. My tires a cracking also, i just noticed this morning. Goodyear, expect a phone call.

This isn't going to work for me. I called good year and told them about the problem with the tires and now they are having me go to a local goodyear shop where they can analyze my tires. They want all service history and tire information i have on the car. Sure doesn't seem like they will honor the defective tires without a fight. Sure seemed pretty easy for those who bought them from tire rack.

i'm sure good year will see i had an alignment done and blame it on that. Or they will blame it on the tire rub that's visual in the inner side walls of the wheel wells
