Against my better judgement, and because there were few options, I bought a 'bacon egg and cheese' biscuit at McD's on the morning of this tire failure. The 'bacon' was literally transparent it was sliced so thin. I should have snapped a pic of that as well.

Every brand receives the same complaint as yours. I've read negative3 posts on irv2.com about Firestone, Michelin, Goodyear, Cooper, Toyo, Contential, and others I can't remember. What the Rubber Manufacturers Associationstates stays in my mind: "over 90% of all tire failures are the result of underinflation/overloading". That is why most tire manufactures publish a load/inflation chart reflecting the minimum acceptable air pressure for the corresponding load.
My dually tires are inflated to 80psi front, 60psi rears, more than the door sticker recommendations, because I never know when I'm going to haul/tow a heavy load.

That may look like oil, but we had just washed out the radiator outside with a garden hose and I pulled the truck in and more water was still draining out of it. Does look like oil in the pic though.

ALL tire failure should be reported, it may not help in the immediate future but when there are enough reports the NHTSA does tend to take action. https://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/ivoq

I was at a gas station recently and overheard a father telling his son "Just fill it up to the psi printed on the tire". How many motorists are out there similarly contributing to those stats?

Goodyear tires, in MY experience, fail with alarming and monotonous frequency. I will never, ever place another Goodyear tire on any vehicle or trailer I own, nor will I recommend them to anyone who asks.

Had the DW been pulling her 40' horse trailer when this happened, I doubt she would have been able to recover safely. She drives this truck 90% of the time, was just dumb luck that I happened to be at the wheel when this latest Goodyear failure occurred.
I had an off brand on my boat. Pulled it from Texas to Florida and had a blast until both tires blew out on the way home. Cheap poorly made tires these days.

Ugh!
I have relatives and friends (that I will not name) that do that. And then time passes...sometimes not too much time...THEN they complain about the tires.
