Just had an OEM 265-75R-16 delaminate, 6" strip around total circumference of a Pirelli Scorpion. 2004 F350, Reg cab, 9900 GVWR, owned for 1 yr and 1 month, 25,700 miles. Tire delaminated under very light load with proper inflation. No apparent road hazard, tire was still inflated for a few minutes after the tread pealed off down to the steel belts. Bottom of rear fender was bent-(folded over) on both ends-front and rear as a result. Contacted dealer the next day, reported the incident-set up an appointment next week to view failed tire and damage. Anyone have an opinion or prior experience in a similar situation? Rick -- N.H.
