Tire Discussion and Failures

In an effort to move forward the discussion of tire issues it would be helpful to record tire failures to establish a data history. It is hoped that this thread, in-conjunction with the Tire Failure Records thread, may be helpful in identifying a manufacturer or tire type with more failures than others and therefore aid members in future tire purchases.


Although this thread is not a sticky and may get lost over time because of inactivity, it can be easily accessed by going to the sticky thread, Tire Records, at the top of this forum and clicking the link below the questionnaire.


As mentioned in the Tire Records thread, if you have a tire failure and want to record it go to the Tire Records sticky thread and copy the Tire Records questionnaire, then click on the link to this thread, and past and complete the questionnaire. Once complete a staff member will move it to the Tire Records sticky where it will be available for all members to reference. Once there is a sufficient number of records the results can be tabulated that may reveal useful information for the members.
