That totally sucks. You should have got way more miles out of that tire.
I've run three sets of Gripsters and love those tires. I did end up putting another set of 705's on mine, but I'm going to be watching them closely. I'm also going to watch my psi. I did a lot of messing around running real hard when packed heavy and airing down quite a bit when off pavement. I thought I might have been airing down a little too much off pavement when running heavy loads of camping gear.
Can you check the manufacture date on your tire that failed?
Mine was a Shinko E-705 with 4100 miles on it. It's a Bias not a radial. Manufacture date 24th week of 2011
I run a mix of PSI - 32-36 for street depending on the load / 25-28 off pavement.
