I hate to hear that as I was probably going to purchase a set from them. I know that they are a little cheaper in some regards but now it is hard to justify a few dollars if I start having problems. If I go local, I, like ccs2k1, have a physical location to go to. I have always been loyal to my local Goodyear and I guess I need to keep that loyality. It is unfortunate that you are having these problems but atleast other people may be able to benefit from your experience.
