I purchased some "Big O' Tires" all terrain A/T 10 ply tires for my F 250 Diesel, I bought them 2 at a time as they are over $150 each.
For those that don't know, Big O' is a Tire company in Indiana, Kentucky and I believe Southern Illinois.
#1, I should've gotten a more aggresive tread pattern. But the real concern is, the 2 "front" tires that were purchased at the same time must have come from the same lot. Over the last 2 months, these tires have "Blistered" on the outside wall. One of them even chose to explode as I was standing by it. They replaced that one under road hazard. I assume they will replace the latest one this morning. (edit note: it exploded as well this morning and was replaced)
Replacement is great, but if either of these had chosen to explode while I was traveling at a high rate of speed, I'd have had a mess...esp if I'd have had the dog trailer or my boys with me. I just think that there may be a problem with these tires and I no longer trust them. I will be looking at another brand 15 minutes after they replace this one.
If anyone thinks I shouldn't complain publically about this since they are replacing them, I take tires seriously, I put my trust in them and for $154 a piece I should have a lot of trust...and I don't. If I buy a piece of crap and you replace it with a piece of crap...why should I trust it?
Just my vent.
