i put goodyears on my mother's car, things didnt last but 5 years lol

they did develop a "bounce", so bad that i thought that she had run over something and warped a wheel

franc. I really thought this tire issue would be the straw that broke the camels back for you where you would switch to Biden. Way to stay strong. Tires are a sensitive issue.

On a serious note...


Aug 19, 2020, 5:54 PM

A company has every right to tell their employees what to wear. This seems to be a ban on all political attire, not just MAGA. If they were telling their customers what they could wear is a different story.

Either way, a POTUS should never recommend a boycott of an American company. Another retarded move by Trump.

Goodyear told the employees that they could wear BLM stuff, but not MAGA hats.

That’s wrong too...

So who makes the best tires? Anyone have an opinion on that?

flag link military_tech thumb_downthumb_up

Michelin/BFGoodrich


Aug 19, 2020, 6:00 PM

Even when I worked for Goodyear I didn't use their tires.

We always called them Good-for-a-year tires.

Re: Trump is calling for a boycott of Goodyear tires.


Aug 19, 2020, 6:02 PM [ in reply to Re: Trump is calling for a boycott of Goodyear tires. ]

i had some BF Goodrich once, they were kinda loud, but had decent wear, put Goodyear Outlast on my kids car, made it through a winter in Massachusetts and still rides fine with plenty of tread, have some firestone on my truck, ride is great, great traction in the rain, but wearing out fast , probably going to go back with Goodyear Wranglers next go round

i put hankook on three cars and ride very well, not sure how long they will last

had some hankook on my truck juance, got 54000 miles and still were not worn out

my daddy was a recap man lol

Michelin by a mile.


Aug 19, 2020, 6:09 PM [ in reply to Re: Trump is calling for a boycott of Goodyear tires. ]

But they're priced accordingly.

I like BFG's as well, but they started viewing themselves as a premium brand and stopped being a great value about 10 years ago.

Have had recent good luck with Yokohama and Toyo. Pirelli's aren't terrible, but are just sort of average in my experience.....never the quietest, best handling, or longest wearing, but are slightly above average in all three.

I drive under 10k miles per year, but I will need an alignment as some tires in few months.

As retail stores go, I really like Discount tire.


Aug 19, 2020, 6:21 PM

Well trained staff and techs and their prices are fair. They will negotiate. Tell them to leave their "certificates" off the price---they're just expensive extended warranties.

Look up the price on Tirerack.com, and then use that to negotiate them down.

Not a fan of cancel culture at all.


Aug 19, 2020, 5:59 PM

Also not a fan of a corporation telling their employees it’s ok to wear BLM shirts, but not Blue Lives Matter or Trump shirts. If you’re going to make a stand like that- I will not support your business. The PC answer is don’t wear any politically motivated attire- period.

I agree. I think it should be just straight uniform. No need to bring that stuff to work. On the other hand, maybe they work in the factory in Ohio and just wear their own clothes.

There is no trolling going on. What are you talking about? Its a real news story and tweet from Trump todaay. I don't care if people boycott or don't. Look at my responses. I didn't argue with anyone about the issue. People can do what they want. I don't think you know what trolling means.
