Winter/Snow Tires and Winter wheels...first time & ordeal
so i had someone who was selling a like new set of Hankook Snow Tires. bought all 4 but 2 ended up being bad.
so at Discount Tire, they had 215/45/18 - CHAMPIRO Winterpro HP
never heard of them but around $175 each, mounted, balanced installed.
drove about 10 miles, luckily traffic is up ahead and at around 40mph...i hear a loud pop and look in rear view and a tire popped!
i thought it would have to have been one of the 2 used ones but turned out to be one of the CHAMPIRO Winterpro (would highly recommend against this brand)
pulled over, called Lyft to grab a few parts because i normally don't even ride around with a spare (weight saving, first time ever having a tire blow)
Discount Tire did admit it was their fault and ended up replacing all four with Bridgestone Blizzak LM-32 Tires. suppose to be a great tire at around: $225.00 so around $900 mounted, balanced, installed
they also covered my Lyft to and from the auto parts store which i thought was a nice touch
my entire family only goes to Discount Tire and after some haggling...they did make it right
will post feedback on how they perform since I do a lot driving in true 4 Season states
