Aqua grip radial uniroyal tubeless, E4,0210175, M+S, pz15175R15100S, steel wires sticking out of tire 2 inches and longer when we got the car to a full stop on a mountain side. We moved here 1 yr. Ago, we were told the tire had a "plug" that was all the way inside the tire and had pulled the wires out to the front/ however I can't understand how this would cause the wires to come through the tire all the way around the tire exposing all the wires/ we had one hairy tire, the wires stuck out 2 inches and longer. The steel belting had come apart from the tire on the inside and was flopping around, you could hear it as you rolled the tire around upright on the ground/we purchased two new back tires.( dot number: Tire size: Pz15175R15 )
