Jalopnik has a great story explaining how Goodyear destroyed and hid evidence that the G159 RV tire was dangerously defective:
"For nearly two decades, RV owners have been trying to get a clear answer about a tire made by Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. that they say has wrecked countless lives—at least nine deaths, dozens of injuries and serious crashes. In numerous legal battles, Goodyear has been accused of aggressively covering up a defect with the tire, preventing a recall from being ordered. What’s even more shocking, plaintiffs say, is that a crucial piece of testimony by a Goodyear employee that might have served as a smoking gun confirming awareness of the tire defect was also destroyed—at Goodyear’s request."
