My Dunlop's blew out also, the same way after 30,000 miles of use. When I looked, the tire was loosing air because of a nail stuck in it.

The SP 9000 should be close to shot at 30,000 miles anyway.

I got a nail in one of mine at about 28,500 miles, and when the tire shop went to fix it, guess what . . . the sidewall gave way on the tire-changing machine. Other than that, they were excellent tires -- great in rain, easy to live with -- and I recommend them.

The notion that they "suck" is over-the-top.

there is something wrong with those tires, i've only had them on for about a year and have driven less than 1500 miles on them. i'll take a picture tomorrow of the sidewall blow out i didn't roll over anything. next week toyo tires when i get my car back. i'm sorry i just can't recommend sp9000 tires to any one. i'm going to check out the version bluecougar is using =)

SP9000s are excellent tires. Great rain performance.
