As this company has elected to keep a business relationship with Transamerican Auto Parts, d.b.a
4 Wheel Parts., its service and tire quality has gone into the toilet.

Bought 4 new Toyo Versado tires for an Acura RL and two out of 4 did not stand up to road pressure testing. The tire dealer replaced the two bad ones free of charge. Since then no matter what the tire dealer did the tires could not be balanced and continue to vibrate at highway speeds.

Am now getting the Michelin's that came as original equipment. The tire dealer was great. The tires just didn't work out.

I bought 4 Toyo tires for my Acura and 4 Toyo tires for my Tundra. One tire on the Tundra cracked on the side. Another tire practically shredded. This blowout nearly caused a rollover. A couple of things were damaged around the wheel well. Waiting to see what comes from my report to Toyo in CA. Alfred Padilla, Belen, NM
