I used to love Nokian tires. Still think that their Hakkapeliitta series are fantastic, but today’s case in point is Entyre 2.0, Nokian’s LRR offering. Today I jacked up my car to service the front brakes, removed a wheel and it felt… prickly. Took a closer look, and holy cow – metal cord is poking through sidewalls! Won’t be able to tell unless looked really close.

Guess that means I’m off the road till Tuesday, when 4 replacement tires (Kumho this time) arrive… I’m not risking my life with these.
