    You used to always be able to recognize tire guys, they didn't have eyebrows.

    I'm wondering if the first tire installer, the one that put the tire with the sidewall problem, on your vehicle inspected the tire prior to installation. One of the tire stores I used in the past required their installers to do a thorough inspection of the tire before it was installed. The owner of the company said, and I quote, "I would rather throw away a bad tire than to see one fail and cause catastrophic damage to a car and injure or kill someone. My business would be a heap of trouble if that happened. Plus medical and legal fees cost more than a tire". I won't name names, but he is a big name in tires in a certain area of the country.

    The theory that a "big bang" from a handgun, along with a perpetrator receiving a gunshot wound, is the best way to end violent personal or property crimes.

    I have always bought the warranty, at today prices for tires. It only take one tire to be replaced and the warranty was well worth it.
