Purchase 4 new tires March 9, 2013 from our local Mr. Tire in marion Ohio. They started going bad this summer. Went to manager and was told you never had then rotated as told. We did go after 6 months of purchase and told to come back next day since they were too busy that day. They were not nice and I called tire company giti tire and was told to have the store call them which Mr. Tire never did, many life events have happened since then and never went back. The two back tires now have sharp metal coming thru as found by my son when I almost wrecked in the rain yesterday. The two fronts are going bald. The tires are runway enduro 816 - P235/65R18. They have 18, 660 miles on them with a 40,000 mile warranty. I do not have the money to replace 4 new tires.

Mountaineer 8-cyl

  • 56,114 miles
Discount tire company informed me that they had a technical bulletin - wheel advisory that said; "do service the Mercury Mountaineer 18" oe wheels (2005 and newer) they found in testing that the front bead hump has a ridge on the balcony ledge which can cause bead damage when mounting. Tests were conducted where several types of tires were mounted and inflated on the oe wheels. The only tire they were able to seat at (50psi) was the original equipment Michelin. After mounting and found that it had a damaged bead. During the test, they were not able to get a tire to seat without damaging the bead. The recommendation: Do not service these wheels. Central Florida Lincoln dealer (formerly central Florida Lincoln Mercury) did not have any service bulletin on this problem. The only way I could get new tires for my Mercury Mountaineer was to buy new 17" wheels and have new tires mounted on them.
