    I wish my payment was that low! How did you manage to kill your tires in only a month?! I guess you didnt like them very much.

    If my tires were bald after a month then there would be something definitely wrong with my driving lol.

    I used to have the same problem with my old Michelin tires on my S-10, those rear tires wouldn't last too long. When I put my BFGoodrich tires on, that pretty much stopped all of my burn outs because the truck only has 200 hp. I hope you don't power brake when you do doughnuts, I blew a rear end like that in a parking lot.
