I have no input in choice of tires so. But I know company will never buy again Warning to all if running Kumho tires watch them carefully. I had one failure when the belts in 2 places broke on tread section of tire. This was about 3 weeks ago.
Today experience vibration [Ford E-450 service truck] Got back to shop and tonight had short distance call to run. Alread was taking it in tommorrow. Side of inner rear tire blew out. I put my deadblow hammer in it so can see how bad. It is blown between belts and tread. Watch them. Maurice

I F*#KING HATE THOSE TIRES!

Had a flat on the work truck and there was a used tire shop around the corner (didn't have spare.) They pulled that one out and I said "Hell No!" They said they looked high and low but didn't have another in my size. I didn't believe them. My story end the same as yours. I'll never buy them again.

I got your back here on this site MG about this subject.

Maybe the Chinese/Koreans are hacking the sites :)

By the time I get to trucks with flat tires on them, not much left to them...just have to pull the tread out of the road.

Had Continentals on my '09 F-250 to start, and got 40k out of them...replaced only one for seperation. Now on Firestones, no problem, and have 95k on truck...about 300 miles a day on the highway...Just a few nales here and there(offroading).
