I just read your story... Tire pressure to much makes tire wear uneven. 45lbs makes tires wear from middle out , to litle makes tires wear from outside 1st. recommended is 35lbs front and 33lbs back. I received Good Year tires and call Good Year for a better tire after 7,000 miles . I paid 20.00 more and I was given their best tire, which lasted 42,000 miles. The tire is rated to last 80,000 miles, lets see today if they make good on these tires.
