returning home from a trip to Kentucky this weekend my buddy we were traveling with called me as i passed him to tell me my right front tire was bouncing quite a bit and that i should get it balanced. so this morning I checked the tire and sure enough it has what appears to be a seperated tread or broken cord. so i put on the spare and proceded to check the others. the left rear has the same looking distortion to the tread and bulging.

So I started looking onto the matter, no new news to you guys but they are Carlisle ST tires and are total curd like all the others I have read about on here and epinions.com. my camper is 18 mos old and has less than 3000 miles on it. what a joke! I am so p'd at this point. I'm looking at over $700 to replace all 5 and am leaning towards the Maxxis but want to check prices on some regular LT tires first.

I've written Carlisle's warranty claim department and will call and berate Forrest River in the morning. I'm sure all for nothing but the piece of mind of letting them each know how angry they've made me.
