Reports of tread separations and bulges on Goodyear nosewheel tires on Gulfstreams and Global Expresses have resulted in an AD. The directive (AD 2006-18-08) requires operators to replace the tires if they fall within a designated range of serial numbers. The directive affects some 1,000 Gulfstreams and 100 Global Expresses.
