Default Won't buy Kumho tires again

Long story short, i bought 4 N E W kumho tires, in less than 8,000 miles one of the 4 tires separated, kimho had me provide receipt, than after the tire was removed, kumho said that since the tire had a puncture in the past (6 month ago) the warranty is void. I'll never buy kumho tires again. In my lifetime I've had at least 80 puncture & never had a tire separate like that junk tire kumho

If the puncture severed a steel cord, I wouldn't expect it to hold up. Did they have any kind of road hazzard warranty?

Didn't pay extra for the road hazzard warranty, kumho should've replaced or given me a discount on another tire

These trucks are expensive. Michelins tend not to develop goofy wear patterns that people try to blame on shocks. They last much longer.
