If they had produced them in larger quantities there would have been a class action filed by a lot of angry owners with ruined low mileage tires that cost $500+.
Sounds like another Ford Explorer recall. I hope Jeep and Goodyear will do the right thing for the SRT8 owners. Sometimes they don't issue a recall until the issue make tragic headlines.
