2nd Toyo Comes Apart

Well, it's happening again. Have heard many good things about Toyo tires, but you won't hear any from me. They have been terrible in the rain, and this is the 2nd one that is separating. Replacing them with Hankook NobleS1 Ventis2, which have been amazing tires, great in the rain, great dry traction, excellent tire longevity.

Replaced the faulty Toyo yesterday with 2 new Hankook. 540 back to feeling like I'm driving on silk. Absolutely love the Hankook tires, great in the rain, great dry, quiet.

Any thoughts on what caused the failure of the Toyo appreciated.
