This last one the dealership stepped up and instead of patting me on the head, charging me to change it out and sending me out the door, they realized the same thing - this isn’t right. The bulk of...

I am with Silverfox. I just got my fourth- FOURTH - front flat in 7200 miles. I am not joking when I say it’s an average of every 1800 miles it happens.

Beyond frustrating.

Sounds like you’ve...

I do like the look for sure and agree $150 for quality is money well spent. I have never regretted buying good products but have paid many times over for trying to save a buck.
