Folks, I have blown out two tires by hitting curbs at relatively modest speeds. The first one happened in a parking lot. I scraped the curb coming into a parking space at 5MPH. The sidewall of the tire burst and the tire was shot. Cost about $450. It then happened again. I scraped a curb at closer to 25Mph taking a turn a little to aggressively coming out of a parking lot.
Okay, maybe I'm a sloppy driver, but this has never happened to me in my Honda pilot or my Toyota minivan.
Is anyone else having problems?
Does anyone have any suggestions? I would spring for tire insurance in a heartbeat!
