    I purchased a set of 33 inch ProComp All Terrains about 5 weeks ago. Now each tire has about four spots where the tires dips down then up again. The dips are about 1/2 an inch wide and they go from the rim to the tread. I 'm not sure if this is dangerous but I am sure it looks terrible. All my buddies are making fun of my new tires. New tires should not look like this. I'm going back to 4-wheel parts on Friday to have them look at them. I had the tires put on at another shop but purchase them at 4 wheel parts. I really want 4-wheel parts to replace the tires. What can I do to make them do this? I have terrible past experiences with getting tires warranted. (They always find a way to make it your fault) Does anybody have a "friend" who works at a 4-wheel parts in the bay area that I could take the tires to?

    If you go to the Oakland store talk to either Pete or Rob. Pete use to own a couple of Blazer's and is a really nice guy. I bought my 33 procomps from him about 6 weeks ago. I am going to go out and look at my in the morning......Dan

    I don't think so. But I haven't looked at them that close. I am going to take a look at them in the morning..Dan

    Re: Thanks

    i think what you are seeing is here the belts are joined...may be wrong, but that is what it sounds like....dont worry, my bfg's do the same thing....its probably not defective since all 4 have them....would be different if only 1 had it....i would still take them back and those guys look at them just in case something bad happens down the road!!

    AIRBORNE!!
