It seems as though that tire failures are not very brand particular. I know this issue has been beat to death on these forums, but it is a very real & ongoing problem. Have read about failures with & without TPMS monitoring systems. So the real question is, what do we do about it? I know that there are many factors to consider about these failures. Air pressure, road conditions, speed, weight, etc. I know that many of you have gone to great lengths to avoid these problems, & that there is only so much we can do.
I did in the recent past contact FR about upgrading to a tire rated above what comes on them from the factory & was told by a FR rep. that doing so would void the warranty on a new unit. So again I ask, what is the solution? I know many of us (me included) are very loyal to particular brands, but as seen on these forums that may not be a very reliable solution.
I sure hope someone comes up with a good fix. Thanks to all who have really worked so hard to cure this problem.
