Sure hope that is an isolated case....my 05 is at 69K miles. After reading this thread I am starting to think my vert will be finding a new home next spring before it hits the 80K mile mark.

When I bought my Hankook tires last October, Discount Tire had better pricing than Tire Rack. I got a $60 rebate from Hankook and saw an ad on TV a few days ago that this rebate is back on.
