    That sucks! I have had TSW wheels before and never had any issues but that was years ago, maybe they are using cheap import wheels to be competitive on pricing now.

    This is not aimed toward you directly but, IMHO:

    Just another reason not to run overpriced, oversized, rediculous, useless (and now dangerous) wheels on a big heavy suv. Poor tire wear, poor ride quality, poor handling, poor braking, high price, high theft rate, asking for a carjacking....... They can keep their dubs, I don't want em. It's funny how people jump on the (big wheel) bandwagon just trying to impress people. It's like the money is burning a hole in their pocket.

    I don't want to sound like a jerk, I understand why people want them because they look cool and all.

    Well...much of what you guys said was true, but I do have to disagree with the whole "jump on the big wheel bandwagon" thing (with no offense taken). The truth of the matter is that the engineers have gone through great pains and labor to make sure that the stock rims and tires are the best fit, performance and safety for the vehicle, but from an aesthetic perspective they are actually ridiculous. Porportionally..it does not make sense to put a 16" rim on a truck that is so large. I'm not saying that the truck should come stock with 24" rims, but 16" is definately too small. Just some food for thought.

    Glad you are ok, hope everything works out with the rim company paying.

    I had a horrible experience with the Kuhmo tires also, maybe it was just my bad luck but at 30,000 I had to replace all four, they started splitting down a seem in the middle of the tire right in the center of water channel. I dont remember there exact name, but they were directional and Z rated, I am pretty sure they are the same or close (not in size obivously) to the ones you had there. Just a warning since you might be getting new tires, my new tires are much much quiter then the kuhmos were as well.
