They can also be used for other vehicle applications incomplete sets of four or axle pairs if available in an appropriate size, load range and speed rating to match the existing O.E. tires’ performance category andspecifications.

My vehicle has a hair under 16,000 miles and traveling at 70 mph which is our speed limit I experience and interior blowout of my right rear tire. After roadside assistance came and put on the temporary And I safely got off the freeway and looked at the tire 3/4 of the tire was blown out as if someone had taken a sharp knife in the center of the interior of the tire and sliced it open. Yokohama told me to go back to the dealer and the dealer tell me to go to Yokohama they’re playing a back-and-forth game with me . The reviews online of Yokohama tires have already had two previous recalls on them and now this new series there is a substantially large amount of complaints of sidewall tire blowouts. These are the worst tires ever do you not buy them.!!
