    2008 Hummer H3

    I've had a goodyear 16" on an older GP explode once after one year of normal driving.

    When we baught the Hummer it had goodyear AT's on it from the factory. H3 had 36k on it when we got her 3 of 5 (includes matching full size wheel and spare) had bubbles in the shoulder treads, but the tires were like new, No Hummers Allowed?.. As you can see in the pics there was quite a bit of tread life left.

    I mentioned in the thread that the tires were noisey. The bubbles I discovered a couple months ago when I moved to more agressive Toyo tires because I could'nt stand the noise anymore. I never off road it..

    The Z34 had 2 goodyears in the front (only) when I baught it from a private owner,, both fronts were new and flat as the car sat in their yard.
    Both rear tires were off brand and holding air.. Later, I put a set of Kumho touring tires on it when I was still driving it..
    I'm putting it on a set of Coopers this time.

    Last goodyears I'll ever run. Their racing tires may be great,, but their passenger car and AT's leave much to be desired..imho

    If your tread in the contact patch is 3/32, then the tires need to be replaced. Once they get that low, they are deemed unsafe.

    2/32 Is the min for PA inspection. Which is usually right at the wear indicators.

    So if that's the case, 3/16" is still looking pretty good

    Imho and so is a lack of punctuation.

    One of these "." closes a sentance or statement..

    The word "thats" should be used with an apostrophe (that's) since you are wording your sentence structure to read "that is a similar". I'm sure you know that though being our local grammar Nazi....

    Let's get back on track now
