Can't believe it, wasn't even off road

Ok, so me and the loving were out shopping yesterday and enjoying a beautiful sunny fall day in my Jeep.
"RANT ON"
We were heading home and I turned a corner and suddenly heard this terribly loud hissing noise, OH OOHHHH. Got the TJ off to the side and had a look at the right rear and low and behold there was a pair of scissors, ya scissors sticking out of the side of my brand new (less than 5K km's) BFG AT's. What burns my butt is they went through the sidewall and the cut is at least an inch long, can you say tree swing.

"RANT OFF"
It was a beautiful day and I got to drive my jeep for a change so it wasn't all that bad I guess. Looking forward to getting my Loving's new truck so she will give my Jeep back, but that's a completely different story.


Cheers
Daryl B.

Sometimes that stuff happens. I SHREDDED a 33" Mickey Thompson Baja Claw Radial a year and a half ago on the highway. I guess I ran over something in the road, but it just SHREDDED. That was a nice costly replacement. Haven't had any problems since. (Knock on wood)

I've caught some random stuff in my tires, and it only happens when they are new...

Always buy the extra warranty. If you can that is. Like Walmart's road hazard. Bc like mrcarcrazy said it only happens when they are new.

Yeah, road hazard isn't nearly as expensive as a new tire... And you hardly ever see scissors just laying around on the trail.........

Yeah, I have to give kudos to Big O. Bought a used car and got a flat, went to Big O to buy new tires. They told me the flat was one of THEIR tires and would be replaced for free. I had no paperwork or receipts, and had not even noticed it was a Big O brand tire.

Does road hazard cover entire cost of replacing tire?

wish we had "BIG O" stores here...

I'm fond of my BFG's. but a deal like that might make me go to a different brand. esp the luck I have with tires.

I've only had this jeep for about 1500 km's and the PO put on the rubber with a road hazard warranty from Costco, only good for the original purchaser though. So the tire, mounted (heh heh, he said mounted) & balanced $212.00 bucks taxes in. Yeeesh, I coulda spent that on body lift or winch mount. Guess I'm working a couple hours OT this week.

Cheers

Wait you were driving down the road and a ninja threw a pair of scissors at your tire?
