I just replaced all the tires on our Saturn Vue with Toyo from Les Schwab when we were in Washington just two months ago. Nothing wrong with the Toyo, they have a great reputation as a premium tire. Here's my predicament:
- We full time and are on our third trip around the country. Replaced all my tires on the Vue tow vehicle in May this year with Toyo Eclipse.
- On July 27th in Durango, CO one of the tires was losing air. Located a Toyo tire dealer in Durango. Found a large nail close to the sidewall and the tip has rubbed against the sidewall exposing the cord. Cannot be fixed.
- Toyo dealer cannot order a replacement tire because the Eclipse is a proprietary model only available from Les Schwab. Where is the closest Les Schwab? Price, Utah, 300 miles from Durango, CO.
- They will honor a road hazard warranty but, only at one of their dealer locations. To get a replacement to match the set, we have to spend the time and money to re-route to Price, UT. A few days and fuel cost. What if I was on the east coast? I would be out of luck.
