Check out my tires

So, in the middle of a recent road trip, i got a flat tire on my truck. Awesome i figure. Wal Mart tire and lube is open, i'll have them see if they can fix. No dice they say, but they have something to show me. Basically my 11 month old tires, with 20,000 miles are falling apart... AWESOME.
so, $1340 later i have new tires, and missed a day of work.
I am in contact with them to try and get some sort of reimbursement for the failure. They have tried to pin it on me, stating under inflation, or over loading of the tire. 40psi is not under inflated, and an 8300 lb truck, on 4 tires rated to carry 14,000 lbs is no where near over loaded. I had two different tire shops state they are torque cracks, and are a manufacturing flaw. We'll see how it goes.
Here are the pictures

These first three are the condition my tires are in.




Im only going to include a few pictures of the cracks, as i could easily take over 100. Basically, at any point on the tire you see this V design above a crack in the picture, there is a crack on the tire, ranging from .25" to 2.5" in length

this first picture is the actual failure.







Again these are just a few of the pics, but each tire looks the same.

Just my .02....


I've seen that happen on that type of tire on the street after being abused by the right foot of the driver.

sorry, thought i posted that, Pro Comp Xtreme MT's, 37x12.5's

Dirk, the truck is my wifes DD... and she drives almost every where with my 6 month old, i know better than "right foot abuse"
The truck is lifted, with no traction bars. The last thing i need is twisted drivelines, bent springs, and broke yokes.
On top of that, if that was the case, why are there not more larger tire diesels with this issue. This website is full of injector'd/chipped trucks with all kinds of power, and ****** drivers.

Not to sound like an idiot but seeing as they are on the sidewall from the pics you posted. I would take a guess and say that it is curb damage. My old Toyo's had developed the same problem after my EX had driven my truck for 3 months while I was out of town. I found out from a few friends that she bounced off quite a few curbs in her daily driving. I am not saying your wife is a bad driver, just your problem looked a lot like mine.

how does that explain cracks on both sides of the tires? they are on the inside and outside... in the same spot, all the way around the tire, on all four tires....

i had a set of pro comp x-terrains when i first bought and lifted my truck.... they are by far the worst brand of tires i have ever owned......call whoever sold them to you, any sidewall damage is a safety issue, maybe they will make it right....
