I am hoping for some sort of credit to buy a tire that I can trust. We shall see

Okay guys, first of all thank you for the advice.

Secondly, today was a good day. After talking with Lionsheads tires who is the distributor for FR and the WestLake tires, they had me file a claim. I was told that they had never seen this problem before but that they would credit me $87.50 per tire. So, I'll take it because I thought I would be paying for all of it myself.

I ended up with the Good Year Marathon (D) tires and had them put on today. I am safely now at the cabin and all is well!

I wouldn't count of FR to do ANYTHING for you. The tires might only have 1400k on them but they could still be old tires. Look for the DOT date on the side wall. ST tires should be replaced every three years of about 5-10k miles. Better safe then sorry. Also don't forget about your spare tire when getting new ones. The spare can be years older then any others and will let you down when you need it the most.

The Goodyear tires are made in China as well. Based on others here being happy with the Marathons I am fine with that.

The date on the old tires was 33rd week of 2012.

Glad to hear Lionshead gave you credit. Below is a pic of one of our 13 month old Trail Express tires. First time out this season - made it 10 miles down the road. Pressure was fine in all 4 tires when we left. Less than 3,500 miles on them. Not feeling too good about the other 3 at this point. It will be interesting to see what Lionshead and/or FR say.

Great, you'll never have to worry about your tires again!

Until the next time.
