Well kit is sad what happened with the first video. That said, the tire you show above has had it pressure run low for a long time, enough so that the side wall went.
Old tires are one thing, not keeping up on tire pressure is another.

I thought exactly the same thing as Powerderpig when I saw the picture of the 2 piece tire.
(For split rims maybe? *joking*)

Also, I noticed there isn't much tread left on that MT. It's a well used old tire.

I call BS on the side wall. You may of gotten them to warranty, but who ever was driving on it was at fault. People need to take responsiablity for there actions instead of blaming it on a maker of goods.

kind of neat to learn the date code on tires (first video), I didn't know that.

x2...But how do you know if a tire was made in the 90's or the '00's? At one point in the story, IIRC, they showed what they claimed was a 12 yr old tire made in '96. How does a person know if the xx6 indicates a 1996 date or a 2006 date? More importantly, if I were to go out and buy tires today, how would I know I'm getting a tire made 2008 and not 1998

Everyone got out and check their tires now
