Your invoice doesn't specify tire model, just size and brand. I don't know what a TBILL-03896 is.

Look, based on your comments here, they can see you're not knowledgeable in this and treat you accordingly. Is it right no.

You haven't answered what specific tires were on each corner of the car to begin with - post #38.

Which specific tires did they install. The RE050A was a pretty good tire as far as handling and performance goes. It does get noisy when it wears.
Ventus V12 evo2

The Original Bridgestone is double the price.

Ok.. Thanks. So you have re050a's in the front which are worn and the ventus v12 evo2 new in the rear.

Still, the issue remains. The fact that you're able to run summer tires this time of year indicates you're in a warm climate. Where it rains? Worn out tires are more likely to hydroplane. This is a safety concern. Dwell on this when you go back there.

Who cares what the price is. It's on their dime as they're the ones offering the tire replacement warranty.

I'm not familiar with this hankook tire but do recall reading about it on this site as well as the 370z. Tire rack lists it in the max summer performance category. After owning a brand new kia for 2 months with poor results, I try to stay away from anything [safety related] made in Korea.

I'm in SoCAL so far, it hasn't been raining as much. The fact that they aren't replacing the front at this condition shows you just how they run business. And replacing the good rears?

I checked the ratings and the Hankook has higher speed ratings and higher tread grade.

Doubt the higher speed rating makes any difference. How often you go over 100 MPH anyway... You may get longer tread life.

Wonder how much more tread there is on the insides of those front tires before cords start showing.

I didnt think UTOG tread wear indicators are directly comparable outside manufacturers.

I'm with JSOLO, pass on Korean made tires.

I'd bet a beer they replaced the rears by mistake or because they had the Hankooks on hand for some reason. I'm sure they just want rid of you at this point

By not replacing the front, they obviously want to see me in again after a few more miles.

In one of the clip, a lady said, "is that the guy with the tires".

So, it leads me to believe they've been talking about me.
