Fx4 20 " pirrelli stock atr tires

Warning!side wall blowouts,these tires are not good for use in North America .they are obviously designed for perfect pavement conditions.I have blown two sidewalls in six months just driving on pavement.They can not handle potholes even small ones.This is canada our roads are not perfect.I wish ford would not use these tires as stock in Canada and they should warn customers of their weakness.Lucky I was going slow at the time they blew.This is a huge safety concern,I hope no one gets hurt at high speed!!!Has anyone else had a issue with these tires?Please post if you have!lets help wake ford up in canada and get a safer more durable tire with some sidewall on there stock trucks!At 400.00$ a pop and peoples lives on the line this is a crime!

Welcome to the site troll, glad you could join up to get on your soapbox and start ranting right out of the gate about how ITS FORD'S FAULT you had two (supposed) sidewall blowouts on your Pirelli's.

Bet if I go to any of the other F150 sites, I'll find an identical post from you, looking for some love.

Stop playing the fear mongering card about how peoples lives are at stake to give your post credibility, you have no pics and no proof and no indication of what your tire condition was prior to the (supposed) blow out.

This sort of shit bugs the hell out of me, you have no useful contribution to this site, you're only looking to air your beef about your tires.

Hopefully a mod will lock this thread, or delete it. Oh wait, a mod was the first to reply.

No need to lock down the thread, this sort of troll is usually one and done, but thanks for your opinion.

Would you like me to give up the Moderator role too, because it makes no difference to me.

Don't think for a minute I won't express an opinion because I'm a Mod, seems a little hypocritical to me.

@ Conrad, there are no active defect investigations or recall reports listed for Pirelli ATR truck tires on the Transport Canada webpage, as of today.

There are however, two active defect investigations regarding Ford F-150 pickup trucks.

TC File # 3280-08-40 : 2006-2010 Ford F-150 pickup trucks, spacing between brake and accelerators pedals. File Sept. 2010

TC File # 3280-08-47 : 2011-2013 Ford F-150 pickup trucks with 3.5L V6 GTDI EcoBoost engine, reduction in engine power during hard acceleration. File July 2013


Press on regardless!

I would be disappointed with Mike if he didn't make a stand. We mod's are members too. and are entitled to post our opinions.

Just for the record, I agree.

Mike is NOT trying to rile people intentionally ( unlike others )
We have an introduction forum, We need to better use this forum. If someone just jumps in anywhere, they should be directed to the introduction forum and told to let everyone "WHO" they are, before posting on the rest of the board. JMO>

So, it's been a week, and Conrad's last sign on to the site matches exactly the time stamp on his first post in this thread.

Funny that so many lives would be at stake and he wouldn't be back to even see responses to his thread huh?

One and done.
