Angry tires...

so the day i bought my car i was driving down the interstate going home and a tire blew...i didn't own the car but for 30 minutes. i was livid. so we got new tires the next day...mind you this was may of 2009. i was checking out my tires the other day because the sensor came on...and i need new friggin tires..ALREADY! i don't drive more than the average person and it think its a tad ridiculous that its been what 8 months? and the brand new tires i got need replacing already.

needless to say i'm never buying falcon tires again

Had the same issue with Falken tires tread wearing too fast on my Honda. Owned them for a year, and noticed the tread were almost gone.

Falkenz do wear really quick. I'm still on the stock bridgestones. I have 26k miles and no rotations yet. I'm about to swap them soon though. The fronts are noticeably worn but still have some life left. I'm betting another 26k miles if I can get them in the rear in time. Dam I'm lazy.


205,125 miles when she was given away
35 mpg last tank

Rob you've never rotated your stock tires?

My stock tires are Conti's ... and they suck. I hate driving with those. In the rain you can feel them slide about. I wish I could rock winter's all year long ... My Conti's are still in great shape so I have a feeling they will last a few more years (darn) ... haha! When they wear out I'll buy new tires, and maybe new rims.

Nope no rotations yet. I really have to do that. Or else I'm going to have to buy two new tires. I have bridgestones for stock but that is because I have the 1.6 with the stock 14" steal wheels.
