PRO COMP TIRE SEPERARION CAUSES TRUCK CRASH

THE FOLLOWING FIRST EMAIL BELOW WAS POSTED BY ANOTHER ADMINISTRATOR FROM ANOTHER SITE (available upon request).



I love to see a shock company make tires

I just got off the phone with a freind that was hauling his Case 580 backhoe to a job and had both front tires just split tread on him. The truck is totaled and the trailer also. The 580 will need some work. He called 4 wheel parts and they told him that they will not warrenty them due to heavy loads. he bought the tires because he had a gift certificate to them for some tires. They said they were E rated tires. So he got them 1500 miles later no truck, no trailer, no 2004 backhoe, and no help from a warranty.

All I can say is BFG all the way. Never had a problem with the 12 sets I have owned in 10 years.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

I bought a set of Pro Comp ATs, 33x12.50x17, from Discount Tire in AZ. At a bit over 25k miles, the two fronts were developing significant tread separations and the rears were starting to go as well. Discount contacted Pro Comp and also the manufacturer (Cooper I believe), and neither company would warranty the tires. In the end, with no arguments, Discount stepped up and gave me a 50% tradein allowance on the full price of the tires towards a new set of BFGs. The tires had been regularly rotated and always run with good pressure on an 01 GMC HD. No more Pro Comps for me but Discount Tire has a customer for life.

My truck came with Procomp tires on it. I have always kept the pressure at 50 lbs as recommended. I am a mechanic and have a compressor at home, so it is not a problem. Last year, I was drivinig down a highway when a tire threw the tread. The tire did not blow out. The tread just spun around the rim tearing up the rear right side of the truck until it completely came off. I almost lost control from the impacts of the tire against the truck. The tire still had 50 lbs of air when I took it off. It had 50 lbs when I had it taken off the next morning for a replacement. Procomp would not pay for damages from a faulty tire unless I sent the tire to them.

I called my insurance and they paid for the damage but asked that I send the tire to procomp for them to look at. Procomp's report stated that the tire was exploded by a sharp object cutting the steel belts causing a blowout. That the tread was thrown off because of no air in the tire because of the blowout. That is a pure lie. The tire did not blow out. They would not send the tire back to me. I was going to turn it into the department of highways. Procomp covered up the fact that their tires are defective.

Requesting resitution for all damages made to my vehicle and a full refund for the value of the tire

THIS IS A VERY SERIOUS MATTER, THESE EMAILS ARE NOT A JOKE.

IF YOU HAVE TIRE FAILURE and/or SEPERATION ISSUES, PLEASE FILE A COMPLAINT WITH The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration below:

http://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/ivoq/ along with a complaint to

http://www.ripoffreport.com




This company is notorious for not honoring their pushed upon $100.00 tire warranty for tire defects such as severe tire pulls and bulges. It so happens when I was off roading, I slammed into a rock that looked just like a KNIFE that split my sidewall open, FORCING them to warranty my DEFECTIVE TIRE.
