Have you ever had tires that seem to fail or wear prematurely? The Firestone Tire Co. has been in the news lately for tire failure issues. This article exposes some of the reasons why tires often fail long before they should. Please watch this informative video on how driving experience, conditions, habits can shorten the life of your tires.

Make sure you watch the end of the video. It will show you what to do in the event of premature tire failure.:nanawrench:

Of course! Why didn't I think of that... long smokey burnouts or multiple donuts are guaranteed to shorten tire life! :poke:

Too bad he can't get those skills to work in the WRC.

I think he was told to rotate the tires frequently... They forgot to mention that they ment to change the location of the tires on the actual car.

For anyone that has not seen this video, it is a must see.
