Castlerock tire issues-not safe

Folks- all that have experienced that horrible tread blowout that happens with these tires, please contact nhtsa and file a complaint. They need just a few more for a recall investigation. Lion head is the main company, tire line is castlerock.
We had one blow out on the fl turnpike at 55 mph, and another while just sitting still on the rv pad. Unbelievable. Dont think they will stand behind them either, have filed a warranty claim but i doubt they comply. Busted our fender skirting on both sides.
There is a 3rd tire that you can tell by lookig at tread is ready to pop. Right side tread is getting wider. Holy cow this is dangerous.

Yes to take the photo. Has nothing to do with the blowouts. One happened while driving. Also have a pic of a tire with the tread spreading.

A typo perhaps?
If the ST225's are no longer made, that perhaps explains why back in May 2019 when I purchased my newest TT, dealer the refused to update the tires or offer any consideration towards newer or different tires. They were 14 mo old when I towed my 2019 model off the lot.
They have since been removed in favor of GY Endurance.

It says 226 right on the tire in the picture. Wonder how old they were when they were installed?
Maybe I read it wrong. Glad you got new tires though!!

I think they are referring to the model number and not the size. If you zoom in on the pic you can see ST 226 molded on the sidewallClick image for larger version

Is a concrete block a bad thing? Just curious.
