Initial Review, 10,000 Miles on Tires
Tires came with vehicle.Have not yet driven them in snow.Traction seems ok in the rain,but they will hydroplain in some conditions.My biggest concern and I've checked with Goodyear tire dealers and called the 18003212136 number and I still get conflicting stories about why the sidewall tread patterns go forward on one side of vehicle and face rear of vehicle on the other side.I've seen this on the Traverse/Pilot/Acadia/Gr.Cherokee/Edge/and Explorer.The manufacturer says it does not matter.I don't believe them.The dealer says those sidewall treads are all supposed the same direction.Jeep service mechanics say it does not matter.In speaking to owners of aforementioned vehicles-they did not even notice this until I brought it to their attention.I've even contacted the National Highway Trans.Safety Admin.They say I'm the only one who has logged a complaint on this matter.I at a loss.The tire is rated a 50k but I don't see that happening.When it's time for new rubber,I'm going back to the Bridgestone/dueler apt-.Can anyone help me?Open to all ideas.
