So I started reading some reviews about the good ol metzelers and my pops in Vegas personally had a bad time with them. He didn't blame the tire so much but the super dry climate. However I did read a few others had the same issue my pops did and that's the tire started chunking. Extremely unsafe and from what I've read was that it was from the tires made in brazil and that recently metzeler USA only will get their tires from Germany. I just got my eBay won tire in the mail today and see that it's been made in brazil. Was curious if I was the only one running a Brazilian Metz or if theres others and if they've had any issues what so ever.
