At TA petro I put both new tires on the front---I wasn't about to repeat the process 50 miles down the road. I am gunshy of the 4 Goodyear rears so am looking for replacements and would like a matched set with the fronts.
Did your TPMS give a warning of low air before the failure? Sidewall usually an indication of run low flex failure. See this post for an example of what the owner thought was a defective tire.

I can't find anyone who has AH11's in stock.

I got mine from dealer tire in Winnipeg but that was 1.5 years ago. Do you have 19.5 or 22.5. The bigger ones only come in AH12.

My rims are 19.5
I contacted Thomas Tire in WPG and they found 5 AH11's but the tires would be coming from 3 different shops!
I'm in Thunder Bay and heading for TX. I thought if I could get 6 fresh tires installed in WPG I would head south from there instead of going through Duluth.
If you could give me a name or phone # for the dealer you used I'd be grateful.
I was also wondering what they charged you over the $310. for installation and bal.
In Ontario we also pay a $12.95 disposal fee
