dude your about to piss me off, just drop it. Your being an idiot for saying you shredded your tires in an hour. If you did do that off roading you obviously dont know how because no tire will shred that way unless you abuse it. Drop it

they're not my tires. i run bfg or yokohama. it's probably easier to shred a tire on the freeway than off road, but tread separation like on the tire that is still mostly in tact is a manufacturer's defect that occurred multiple times and caused large amounts of damage. you can't really talk about off roading and abuse, you posted pics of off roading in a flat field. i'm not talking shit on you, just making an observation.

yeah, defect after defect after defect after defect. if you get 15 tires on your truck that ALL shred and cause you to be without a truck, would you keep running them? FUCK NO YOU WOULDN'T. this defect caused the truck to be out of commission after an hour, THIS TIME.

the firestone tires on the explorers had DEFECTS that caused injury, damage, and deaths from roll overs. what tires are on explorers now? not firestones.

general tires have a problem with their side walls creating air bubbles and becoming un-usable. they're DEFECTS and can cause the tire to break apart after use.

it can happen with any tire, sure as shit. i personally do not like good years because i have seen it happen way too many times than other brand on comparable trucks. run what you like, fuck if i care. i was giving my opinion based on personal experiences at my end.

you said it doesn't happen to big tire companies, i brought up firestone's tread separation problem. you want to argue it's a defect, sure as shit it is. there were also defects with the firestones causing the tread to separate and with the general tires causing the air bubbles.

the point of it was that once you get defective tires and they have issues like the ones i posted, ford encountered, etc, you stay away from them. i have a slow learning curve, but if one tire blew out on me it would take a lot for me to buy their product again.

No, I said it doesn't happen in an hour. Tire defects happen with any companies, so dont try and burn a specific one when you just said it happens to all of them.

I have a 2003 EDGE and wonder how much gass mileage will suffer going from a 235/75/15 to a BFG 30.com Thank you.

2003 EDGE V6 3.0 *01-11-12 New Brakes/Oil Change*Flowmaster 40/pipe increase/chrome angle tip*MPH increased from 19.00 to 20.8 MPG with Flowmaster/Pipe. Looking for K&N and Airbox Mod (will K&N Fit without Airbox Mod?), and deciding on changing 235/75/15 to 30 or 31 BFG's: (goodby 20.8 MPG! )

How about when you actually need to use your truck like a truck? I really like the look of CUTiger's truck (maybe because it's tan like mine) but I'm afraid of what will happen when I need to get a half yard of topsoil? IIRC, the rear end sags a lot with that much weight in the bed. I rarely (once a year at best) need to put THAT much weight in the back, but I don't want to be rubbing anything like that.
