Damn Hitech Retreads and F*ing Samurai!
I'll NEVER again put another set of these tires on anything I drive! Today, while doing 80mph on the highway, without any warning, the front tread seperated (like the semi tires do) and blew out. I did everthing I could do to keep the truck on the road. Luckily, no one was near as I shot through the median strip and came to a stop. Well, I got the tire swapped with the spare, headed down the road and noticed my brakes were tight when I first pushed the pedal. I pumped the tires and the pedal went right to the floor! I got out and looked for the problem. Both my rear brakes blew and fluid was coming out from the drums! I had to drive about 60 miles with little to no brakes (mostly E-brake pulling). Needless to say, I'm frazzled.
