We lost the wheel on our 2003 and couldn't tell for miles. We were flagged down by a fellow traveler. Tacoma tires - No blow outs! We even drove it another 40 miles into Beaver Utah with the Wrecker from AAA following us.
Tacoma tires where China junk. I would hate to have our story construed as a testimonial for Tacoma tires! Just don't read more into what you read.
Michelin Ribs are fine tires, but they are not a gift from above. If you really want to sell tires to the MOC, tell Michelin we need an LRE tire that will actually carry the weight on our 7K axled Montanas.
