I purchased Exta Platinums based on my service reps recommendation. I should have bought Michelins.Purchased last year and installed at Acura dealership. 6 year replacement and 60k treadware warranty but lasted merely 1/3rd- 1/2 the life expectancy of the tires. My front tires seperated at the speed limit bout 3 am and it was terrifying. Being steel belted radials gave me an opportunity to get control of my car and be stranded on a major interstate. Nothings open and its cold so I get out, inspect, pray, survey, and only 4 hrs til something open. Of course i had a horrible experience and it scarred me with this brand. I read the warranty claims and just decided that I need tires right now and the cost of 2 new tires, mounting, alighnment, hardware, taxes and other gouging fees due to seperated tires and wheels is a tire shops dream. No bargaining power and spending a lot of money unexpectedly. My message is I'm alive and very angry about this failure but I'm not going to beg khumo tires for a rebate or replacement tires. I heard the tire replacement professionals disuss how poorly they perform. While charging me premium prices for cheap replacement tires they need to push under the circumstances. So I'm going to help other consumers avoid this poor choice of tires. I work with over 1000 people and if I can help them make an informed decision about purchasing tires then I've done my job. I can honestly tell you that I will not allow any family or friends to ride in a vehicle with khumo tires on it knowingly. I took pics and will share them .
