A little off topic, but here goes.
I bought a set of BFG All terrains for my Tundra 1 1/2 yrs ago. they've got plenty of tread left, have maybe put 30k miles on them, but have had them balanced 4 times! Had them rebalanced for the 4th time last weekend by my Toyota dealer who I trust and he was very unhappy with them. I've never had to balance a set of tires this many times so it's got me wondering.
I bought them at Discount Tire for what seemed like a great price, but after smashed locknut's, 1 stripped lugbolt and all this balancing I'm just not sure. I know that the first 2 issues are a result of poor workmanship at Discount, but the balancing has me puzzled. Is it possible that Discount is buying factory second's and reselling them? I have talked at length with the regional manager in MI about this and he has assured me that they will "take care of me" on my next visit, but is it even worth it?
Just never had this much trouble with a set of tires and I've been buying BFG's for 15yrs......
