Walmart Goodyear Viva Tires

I bought a set of Goodyear Viva tires. I have 50,000 miles on them, but my steering wheel started vibrating so I stopped at the local Goodyear store to have them check everything out. They told me that the right front tire was "separating". However, even though they make them for Walmart, they don't sell them. He said that they haven't sold them for 16-17 years!

Goodyear would not stand behind their product. They said that I had to go back to Walmart. So I did. While I waited.....for 1 1/2 hours. I reviewed my options and did some online searching. Seems that I'm not the only one who has this problem! Goodyear and Walmart both know of the safety issue, but continue to manufacture them and sell them!
I then found out that all Walmart was going to do was discount the price on another Goodyear Viva tire. I decided not to pay for defective tires that would have to be replaced in a year or so, and deal with the lousy service as well. I walked out. Hope you all do too! Safe driving to you!

Sidewall leaking NEW
by: John Hoskam

Less than 5000 miles. Walmart had discounted them, so I bought 4 and did not get hazard insurance. Have already replaced one and now another one is leaking. Have them on my Tacoma and both on rear. A load in the bed put some more pressure on tires, I hope the ones up front do not start leaking.
