Angry ProComp Xtreme a/t splitting

Well like the title says one of my tires is splitting. It has happened within the last month because thats how long its been since I washed and checked air pressures. Im pretty dissapointed becuase I always see people talking good about them here and I have bragged about them myself. They have gotten pretty good mileage but now are split. I have had them for almost exactly 1.5 yrs and have right at 25,000 miles on them and they still have a another 20k left. One also looks dry rotted and will go down from 50psi to 35psi and stay there. So has anybody else had this happen?
I drive alot on the interstate, not really fond of having a blowout at 75mph so I think Im gonna get a set of Goodyear duratracs(load range E). My tire guy is gonna give them to me for $1175 mounted/balanced out the door.



Theres another spot but I didnt get a pic

Kinda long but Im kinda pissed right now. Any thoughts/comments on why or on the duratracs?

Hate to hear that about such new tires. I've never bought a set new, but the stock 20s I just bought have a worn out set on them. They are worn out but worn evenly and still holding together nice. No cracking in the contact area or sidewalls. The Duratracs do sound like a good choice though, I haven't read any bad reviews on them.

Yeah it sucks, I bought these tires cause I thought they looked good and with a 40k mile tread wear rating I would be almost out of school before I needed new ones. Do you know how many miles are on those tires you got?

The guy I got them from said they have had a pretty rough life and already had about 40K on them. I like the looks of them and they ride good for being worn out. But I don't think I'll be buying them again. I think it was 4 Wheel Parts I looked at and they were like $413 each. Ouch. I may put a couple thousand on them before I change them but they won't be on much longer.

Ya I just mean because of the price. I'm probably going to drop back down to a size closer to stock. Stock is a 275/65R20 so I'll get something around there for a little cheaper. Seem like a good tire though. Thinking back, a buddy in CA had a set of these in a 37/12.50R18 and he got around 40K or more out of them. Replaced them with Toyo A/T and liked the Toyos a little better. Not sure how much life he got from the Toyos though.

My step dad has Toyo's on his k5 blazer and likes them alot but its a lot lighter compared to the 250. I like the way the duratracs look over the Toyos. I dont know I hate buying tires I wish there was only one type to pick from

Given any thought to contacting procomp to see if they will do anything? I love my procomps they are doing great so far.

I loved my Pro-Comp Extreme ATs. Got over 40,000 miles out of mine...



When they wore out I was going to get another set. But they no longer make the 38" tire. Cooper makes the tires for Pro-Comp. I'm still hoping they start making them again. I hate the BFGs I ended up with...
