 Description of the problemI bought a set of dunlop 235/45r17 sp sport signature tires in febraury, 2008 -- and replaced one of them in september 2008 due to unrelated issue. In early july, 2009, only about 17 months after i bought after i made my intial purchase, and less than a year after i bought the replacement 4th tire, the sidewall began to deteriorate (on the newer 4th tire) and the tread began seperating from one of the other 3 tires. Had my mechanic (doing a brake job) not noticed the defect, i could've easily had a blow-out and serious injury. I took the car into the tire store when i bought all 5 tires. They inspected the tires and found that all 4 were defective. They called goodyear/dunlop (i spoke with mary in the customer service dept.) goodyear/dunlop acknowledged that all 4 remaining tires were defective and initially demanded $200 to replace all 4 of the defective dunlop tires (which i originaly paid $1,000 for). Eventially i agreed to pay $120. 51, but i still think i got screwed. Meanwhile, there's no recall notice, but clearly these are defective tires.
