We used to have a commercial here that said that. Anyhow, here's the deal. 2004 Ford Super Duty had BFG's that started separating on me in the 40K range. Two blow outs on I95 pulling a trailer is not fun. Not to mention having to changed the dang things. Went to the local truck tire place and they highly recommended the Bridgestone A/T Revo 2 in 10 ply. So after more than a $1000 I had new tires. I did this about two years ago. A month ago the truck was hopping really bad on the rear and I took it back in. They found a separated tire and pro-rated it on wear. I have probably 25k on these tires. This past Friday I am heading up the interstate pulling a gooseneck flatbed with an 8000 pound tractor on it and truck started to shake. Before I could get stopped the tire blew. Truck tire. The tread had separated and came off the inside of the tire ripping my fender up. So two $225 tires separated within a month of each other. I did some looking around the Bridgestone A/T is complained about for several years starting in the mid 2000's. Now I gotta wonder what to do. Pro-rate I won't get much (I had to pay $169 for the first pro-rated tire that got replaced. Now I need 4 new ones since I used the factory original spare and it blew within 50 miles. I now need, 1 for the latest blown tire, 2 to replace the ones left that my pop, and 1 for a spare. Pro-rated it will still be around $1000. Or, do I use the Bridgestone I got pro-rate a month ago as the spare and buy 4 new different brand tires? I kind of want an A/T tire and not just a highway tire.
What are you guys using? Do you tow many trailers? How much weight and how often? Even my factory tires lasted over 40K before they started to separate.
I have a friend who ordered a 2004 SD off of my build sheet. He got the same BFG's and blew a front tire doing $2800 damage to his truck. He had 30K on his tires at the time.
I figure about $500 damage to my rear fender and my deductible is $500. lol
