    Default blew out another f**king tire!!

    Okay, can a company such as Kal tire just give a free replacement tire? I mean, this is the 4th tire that I've replaced...well, buhbuh replaced the first but this is the fourth tire outta the four that were originally placed on the rims!! the first three have been replaced and have been paid for, pretty much the same price as a new tire!!! And they call it being replaced under warranty!! Fuck, what can I do to get a new tire without having to pay again? I mean, shit, it's the fourth tire!!!!

    Stop driving with your e-brake on! Seriously, how are they blowing out, are you driving over antennas? or are the tires you are using really that bad? Or is it simply super bad luck?

    leo, i'd complain, i mean if it were 1 or 2 it'd be just plain bad luck, but if all four have blown the same way i'd be pissed off, talk to their manager or something.

    Sound like perhaps a weak sidewall design.

    But i've herd of other tires brands having the same problem with 40r-35r warping the sidewall after driving on some rough pavement.

    hrmm...that's not a good sign. My friend was driving back from Kewlona when one of the rears blew out and the other rear tire had a bubble forming on the sidewall.

    Yah, they are all avons! But the thing is that with the exception of the one bulge that came about from hitting a huge pot hole at high speeds, the other three have all developed a pinhole on the side wall. Very very small hole, but I was told that this was patchable, but in the end, I can't patch it cuz the belts were ripped cuz I ended up driving on it while it was flat. I didn't even know it was fucking flat until I hear this fucked up vibrating noise!! fuck, oh well, I'm not sure what causes the pin holes, but maybe it's from allt he drifting?? hahahaha anyway, it's covered by warranty and I took it into kal tire today and they said they would replace it for around 100 bux. The price of a brand new one is about 222 or something , so that's not bad. The guy made a good point though, how can they cover the tire if it was something that I did to it? If it was in fact from drifting, then these tires are totally not meant to be drifted in and I should stop!!! hahahaha
