    i got the worse luck with tires..

    afternoon Folks..

    So i got an issue with my tire it was raining & i didn't see a pothole so this is what happened to my sexy tires.Click here to enlarge so because i'm on a budget i found this: http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires....omCompare1=yes

    & i am wondering if anyone has any experience with this tires or if you can recommend a better/cost tires, all season would but anything is necessary at this point idk how long this tire is going to last me & i don't want it to blow in the middle of the highway.

    Thx for the time

    Was that thing fitted and rolled/ balanced correctly ?

    I had the exact same issues on a 2000 Esprit I owned and one day I watched as the idiots at my regular shop MIS-fitted them to the rims... stopped production forthwith, went to another tire mob down the road and PERFECTION

    Review say the road noise is terrible. Khumo got bad reviews too. With tires you kind of get what you pay for unless you use Nitto. To me the best bang for the buck by far. I've never used a Nitto AS tire though. You can not go wrong with a nitto summer tire though. I've had plenty.

    Yeah I was surprised myself. Lots of good reviews on forums too. I am going with a 265/35/18 when I have to replace my rear PSS. A little over 200 for the pair shipped
