How can I get in touch with the conpany that made Summit Trail Climber tires. I bought six of thes tires and one of them has bulges around the sidewall. I'd like to know if the tire will separate.

Wrong info
by: Anonymous

I have these same tires in a Fird E250 van. Recommended tire pressure is 60 front and 80 back. The tires are rated for 80psi.

I also had a separation this week on my right rear tire with less than 10,000 miles. I also have doubts about the reliability of these tires.

Purchased a set of Summit tires A/W Trail Climber with just over 18,000 miles on them these LT 265-75-16 load range G. Tires (2) separated. Both were on the passenger side of the vehicle. Am not satisfied with these tires at all as I am on a trip and now have to worry about getting back home with the two remaining tires. The tire pressures were monitored and kept at 75 psi.

Will not purchase again or recommend these tires to anyone.

Editorial Comment:

You have not told us what kind of vehicle you have installed these Summit tires on, nor in what kind of conditions you have been using them.

The only observation I can make from the information you've provided is that 75 psi seems to be an extremely high tire pressure for virtually any vehicle that I can imagine since the normal pressure most vehicles use is in the 26 to 32 psi range. Tire pressure may have had some part in creating the problem you experienced.

Please check the pressure recommendations from your vehicle manufacturer and adjust your tires accordingly. But, keep in mind that if you have run these tires for 18,000 miles with a pressure which is extremely different from what is recommended, the other tires may also be severely compromised and could be expected to fail prematurely even once the optimum pressure is in use.
