Those OEM tyres... ever tried to get some more the same? $600 each for mine ... good tyres though. If more people bought them maybe the price would come down
Poor design is a major no no for any manufacture these days, they have CAD to see what doesn't fit, or fits too tight. Or get too hot etc etc. Poor choice of materials can be seen as a cost cutting thing.. but you loose reputation.
Is this why consumers buy overseas products - they have the product quality that is EXPECTED? And probably why 'we' are loosing jobs overseas. Personal I put it down to the managers, a recent public example was the car executives flying in in their private jets to ask for money from the President... no wonder they are going down hill. No common sense.
