On my wife's Ford Explorer, her right side tires look so weird after about 1 year. Can't see the letters, rather just a white circle about 1 inch thick. Anyone know what that's from or why that appearance?
I would get them checked by a shop that does not sell tires rather than one that does... because... places that sell tires like to sell tires, lol... unless you have road hazard coverage, then you can put the two new tires on the same axle rather than same side.
You might want to get some "curb feelers" installed. They are about 8 inches long and attach to the inside of the rear of the wheel well. They are flexible spring material that will vibrate when they tough something (like the curb) She should be about to feel it instead of the tires hitting the curb.
