this is regarding a 16 ply 11r22.5 truck tire,firestone fs 561 steer tire. at 40k miles noticed uneven wear/checking on the 2nd rib in from outside of tire.Keep in mind my trucks have been aligned and checked for worn parts and new shocks.now at 45k miles plus,tire is worn heavily on both 2nd grooves.notified the tire dealer and he had already had several sets doing the same thing...at first firestone replied that they knew there was a problem with all the 561s.now that there has been numerous complaints,there tune has changed,and they know nothing of this issue.funny how that works...now i will have to replace both sets i hav,one international one kenworth.my suggestion;DONT BUY FS 561'S,OR MAYBE BETTER YET NO FIRESTONE/BRIDGESTONES.
