Actually it seems that a belt might have been broken in one of them. They should have been able to balance out.

{Forgive me for bumping an old thread, but I wish to post a follow up, if that is allowed. I know I've been scolded in the past for doing so here, but this is relevant...}


I have now 40k miles on my 2004 SE...and the tires still perform and handle as they were still like new. I have put about 24k miles on these Goodyears.

We've had some snow & ice in central WI, and the traction control hardly activates, except on deep snow. I rotate the tires every other oil service, so every 6k miles...

My only "beef" is that in snow you need to steer ahead to "coax" the front end to follow, however 98% of the time they perform great.

I only wish this sort of tire was an OE fitment, and when or if it comes time to replace my Bonneville, my next car will get a new set of these Triple Treads right away...
