Inferior Tires

I have a 2016 Forester with 31,500 Miles on it. One of the tires developed a huge bulge on the sidewall. I called the dealership to ask about warranty coverage for tires with only 31,000 miles on them. I got the run around at the dealership They kept transferring me and the service dept. never answered, eventually it went to voice mail and they were supposed to call me back, THEY NEVER DID. (Peninsula Subaru ) So I called Tacoma Subaru, they at least talked to me and promised to call me back, they never did. The tread on these tires were in excellent shape. I had to buy new tires ( at a tire center ) $1090.00. I feel new car tires should last longer than this, and I should have at least gotten some credit. Please put decent tires on your vehicles.

I had the same issue at roughly the same mileage. I had 3 bubbles in the side walls if 3 different tires.

I figured that I would have been provided higher quality tires. I will admit I do drive some highway miles but they seemed to ware out much quicker than expected.
