Dick Cepek FCII split side wall.
So my FCII's have about 35,000 miles on them and I was looking to milk them through the end of summer. Well that all changed today. While driving at low speed I could hear a rotational rubbing noise. My side lugs on the tires have been showing signs of dry rot around each lug and one finally let go. It would leak every rotation when on the bottom and the tire would buldge. What chaps my *** is these are only two years old.
What really sucks is the FCII's are no longer made and are replaced by the Fun Country's which are not available for a couple weeks in a 37/12.5/17. The tires that I really wanted was a Procomp Xtreme All Terain but that is not available untill August. Sucks!! Because I needed my truck, I went with a Nitto Trail Grappler. I know one person who has them on a dodge and he said that they wear like iron. My worry is that they are going to suck for tug a truck and be to aggressive for sled pulling. This was the only tire that I could get by this Friday. Blows!!!!
