and the first run was the tie rod run
I dont even have 500 miles on these and have put a hole in the sidewall on two tires
I have only been out 3 times

That blows!! Didn't you get them @ Discount, or somewhere where you get a warranty???

Whenever I have tire problem, I go have them warrantied out.

WOW! 2 tires on 3 runs! I'm running the bighorns and haven't had any problems with them. But they deff do not have the sidewall of the MTR's. I think someday when these tires are gone I'll try to go back to the MTR's also.

Do you have any warranty on those tires?

That sucks Tim, I've had 3 tires replaced under road hazard in less than a year. Looks like I'll be going back to MTRs
