              Comments about g-Force T/A KDWS:

              owned this 1996 impala SS since Nov 1995. never had any issues with these tires except they wear out at 35,000mi. the tires are rotated every 6,ooomi.

              In 2007 I installed the 3rd set of tires. in 2010 the tread cracked on one tire between the inner and outer treads all along the rolling surface. tire was replaced warr adjustment.

              now sept 2012 2 tires have the same exact defect in the same exact tread area.

              for some reason the one tire purchased in 2007 has no cracking anywhere. the tires that had cracks only did so on the tread.

              Side walls etc look new , perfect looking , that to see tread cracks is quite a surprise .

              tires that now failed have 15,000mi .
              Vehicle has 70,000mi and is in perfet condition

                    Tires dry rot

                          These were the original equipment tires on my Mustang GT. I get more mileage out of tires than is expected. After about 4 years, these BF Goodrich tires began to show signs of dry rot. I've never had that happen before, and I keep vehicles for many years. I have a '98 Corvette I purchased new that has low mileage and the original Goodyear tires, which show no sign of deterioration. I have a 2004 Thunderbird I purchased new which still has the original equipment tires, they're Continental I think. They show no signs of deterioration. BF Goodrich refused to replace these tires although they were dry rotted within the 6-year warranty period, saying that I had gotten the use out of them for which they were designed and that, because the cracks were not bad enough to show the cords, they didn't require replacement. This tire is W rated for speed, but I don't feel entirely safe at highway speeds. The tires still have 5/32 tread depth on the front and 4/32 on the rear. If not for the dry rot and safety concerns, I would get many more miles of use from them. The fact that Goodrich thinks I've gotten the use of them intended is irrelevant if they became defective within the warranty period. I will replace them in the near future, but it will not be with a BF Goodrich tire.
