    First of all, I'm amazed to find out that all these tires and many other famous are manufactured by Cooper Tires. [​IMG]

    Second, I just found out that there's a class action suite going on against Cooper Tires. It doesn't mean that your tires are bad or will blow up right after you read this, it just gives you benefits. So go ahead and visit this site: http://coopertirelitigation.com/coopertire/coopertire_brands.html VERY interesting.

    Personally, I will still buy my Explorer Pro Comp Xterrains as soon as I have the money. I'd say don't go out and make a scandal out of this. I just posted it for information purposes, not to keep you away from these brands.

    Not all Yoko's and Pirelli's, just the model numbers listed there. [​IMG]

    I have a set of Mickey Thompson Baja Claws that almost imediately after installation seperated on 3 of the 4 tires. The retailer wouldn't take them back because "there is no warrantee on light truck tires." Needless to say the tires are only used as off road bashers. They are now very worn. I wonder if now they will take them back?
