problem #2

  • miles
Early a.M. went to car noticed tire completely flat due to 'cracked/defective' valve stem. Had purchased 4 new tires 2/8/07 from sam's club. They replaced valve stem but did not mention anything about a recall and did not check other valve stems for defects. I was not aware of recall until hearing it on the news this week. Now concerned about other tires and if the 'new replacement valve is safe.
