    Default Tire help



    I bought some tires a couple of years ago and have noticed some cracks forming. The tires are Yokohoma's Geolanders ats. 33x12.5x15 I am planning on moving to Oklahoma and am questioning the shape of these tires. I have around 3K miles on them still all but brand new. I am going to try and post a picture so please bare with me. The cracks are most noticeable towards the bottom of the picture that is on the right side. Do you think these might be under warranty still?

    You bought them new a couple years ago and they already have cracks like that? I would definitely be returning them!

    Had the same problem with my geolanders a few years ago when I had them on the FJ. Over inflation cracks these tires out in a hurry.

    That's just it, I have never over inflated them. 35 psi is all I have put in them. Maybe that's to much. I will be taking them to Big O in the morning.

    It shouldn't. I never had that problem with the Geolanders that I had. Definitely take 'em to a shop.

    I agree, return them. I had a set of BFG AT's that cracked and Big O replaced them. They just return them to the mfg. so it doesn't cost them anything.

    Talk to youre store manager. You'd be amazed how far they will go to keep a customer..
    At least if they give you a good discount it better than full price

    I do believe I'd agree. Those're pretty bad!

    Well I just got back from the shop about these tires. I am going to get them fixed at a high end price of $20.00 per tire. This is the high end. Could be less, no charge for dismount, mount, and balancing. Thank God! The Buffalo is getting some new rubbers!Will take it back around 10 a.m. tomorrow to have it all done.
