Darn, I went with those darn quality Goodyear MT/Rs again.

I could've gone with Coopers and gotten a new lease on (tread) life!

You mean if you survived to this point....

The Interco tires are big and hard to balance, but have worked well!

It's called an 'impact seperation'. I see them all the time at work (I'm a tire guy). It happens when you hit things. Not saying there isn't something wrong with the tires, just that it isn't as uncommon as you might think.
