Please don't take this wrong, but that doesn't even warrant the question. That tire is junk.

At what speed would you feel safe about that tire coming apart? 55mph, 85mph, 130mph? A new tire will be cheaper in the long run.

For everything that is worthwhile, there is a counterfeit.

Any idea what kind of 60' times he got on those?

BTW - I wouldn't risk my life on those either.

ouch man, I hope the problem will be fixed before it happens again, that being a 26” tire, is it too low a rear spring or too soft?

He actually just put set of coil overs on the rear with a stiffer spring rate. Also found a broken weld on the rear sway bar to diff housing mount. Between the 2 of those the car has no more problems and he switched to a MT radial pro

stiffer spring is just going to band-aid the issue... with a radial you want to stick the tire and keep it planted.

if the car squats when he lets go of the button hes just fighting a loosing battle
