These tires held up well for the first 3 years. They handled the road, wet or dry, really well. They haven't seen snow.
In March 2016, I had a blowout on I75 in Tennessee what stripped the road surface tread off the tire. I'd thought I just had a bit of bad luck. Then on Oct 3, 2016, I had a second blowout on I13 in Delaware. Same thing: road surface tread was stripped off. Today, I had the wheel bearings checked and my mechanic found a bubble under the road surface tread of one of the original tires. Clearly there is something defective on these tires. For your information, the manufacture date on the original tires is 0313. It looks to me like a bad batch of rubber. We will now see what their warranty people say as to the cause.
Anyone else have similar experiences?
