Ami,

Glad you are alright.

Had a similar experience with my car (4 tires blew up in a week) 2 years ago with Michelin tires. I finally had to call DOT in order for the manufacturer to do something. This also initiated an investigation and according to DOT might turn into a recall if proven that enough tires were defectives.

Contact DOT, they might need your info.

Frederic

Final update: Unable to find the original Uhaul wheel, I had a wheel transplant operation. Cut the inner wheel and weld it to a new outer rim. Looks to be precisely on spec. I hope someone finds a more reasonable replacement for this next-to-impossible-to-find wheel.
