new member from Mi singing the pothole blues.2012 silver R/T took out both driver side tires from pothole monday AM.Less than 17K miles on it and they tell me one of the original tires has wear bars showing , they wanna sell me a new one.I don't think so!!
Welcome to the forum from the other side of the "Mitten," a little west of Kalamazoo, that is. I grew up in North Dearborn Heights, later moving to Livonia.
If 'ya ever get tired of the "excitement" up there, try this part of the state - fewer potholes, fewer people, lol !! The dealerships, wanting to sell you a new car every other week however, are all over out this as as well !!
Like it or not, 17K on the tires is about right for factory rubber. Try the Yokohama YK580. That's what I run on my car and they're great. They're a discount tire exclusive and worth it. The weight of these cars is the problem.
