WALMART GOODYEAR VIVA
Bought 4 back in late 2012
Paid extra for road hazard & lifetime balancing.
At time of purchase had aprox 45k on the vehicle. Had front end checked & aligned around the same time. Only toe needed slight adjustment.
Only have about 10,000 miles on them as of 7-2016
Most mileage is hiway travel to Florida & back once a yr. Have NEVER been able to balance even after 6+ attempts. 3 tires required replacement within first 3 mos. And still they squirm & bounce after warming up. My original purchase was for tire date codes of 2011.Somehow, they managed to put on a 2009 replacement. That tire was 3 yrs old when they "fixed" the problem.
Neither Walmart nor Goodyear are willing to deal with this. So much for my trust & loyalty for either one. By the way Walmart & Goodyear, I operate a small fleet of vehicles & generally used a Goodyear product. You can now both watch as my money goes somewhere else & never buys another Goodyear product...branded or otherwise.
