I recently bought a rim and tire package on November 2, 2009 from Tire Kingdom in Columbia, SC. I had to put down about $400 dollars on them and have a year to pay them off before they start charging interest. In March 2010 a pothole on hwy 378 popped the tire and cracked the rim.

The tire is unfixable and when I asked who is responsible for paying for it, the answer is me since the manufactureer wont and tire kingdom refuses to. We have filed a formal complaints and talked to corporate and the shop itself without any results. I advise anyone wanting to buy from tire kingdom to reconsider as they do not have good waranty or rules/guidelines on defective products.

So now i have to file a report with the city and highway patrol to see if they are willig to pay for the totaled rim, which is highly doubtful.

Had an Experience with Tire Kingdom?

WOW, you are a greedy little person, aren'tcha?How can you rationalize hitting a pothole and blaming the damage on the place that sold you the tire and rim?

Admit it, you got unlucky, but don't want to spend a lot of money, so you're trying to get some free stuff.Shame on you.


tk offers a road hazard package on all tire sales for a extra 16 per tire. the first year they replace the tire after that it is prorated based on tread life. if you did not purchase this i do not understand the complaint.

if you smashed the truck into a telephone pole, would the dealer have to buy you a new one?


Just curious as to why you think the tire company or Tire Kingdom should pay?You hit a pothole by your own admission so how does that make the tire defective?

Most tire warranties I've seen exclude damage that the driver causes, ie: potholes, curbs, etc.

Doesn't appear the tire was defective at all just unfortunate for you that you hit a pothole.I unfortunately agree with the Tire Kingdom on this one.
