On 10/25/10 I purchased two 215/65/16 Yokohama tires from Discount tires company. I had them mounted on my car on 11/05/10.
Two days later, one of the tires blew out on highway. I lost control of the car and I was fortunate I did not hit anyone nor I damager my car. I replaced it with the spare and took it my Toyota dealer the next day. I called Discount Tire office and I was told to take to an authorized Yokohama dealer.
If they prove that the tire blew out without any cause from the road, the Yokohama Company will replace at no charge. The Toyota dealer found nothing from the road that caused the blow out. Yokohama would not replace it. I was fortunate that my extended warrantee on my car covered $100 and I paid $40 out of my pocket.
Last year I bought 2 similar tires from Discount tire Co. This year I went back to them I purchased two more. I will never buy any tire or do business with them again. I will make sure that my community members of over 13 thousands will do business with Discount Tire and get ripped off.
I was lucky I was not hurt or killed when I lost control of my car because of a tire that I bought from Discount tire. They do not stand behind their product even when it is defected.
