Blew out a tire @ 80...

bought my car with used Nankangs on it, i knew i should have replaced them sooner!

Luckily no damage was done to the car, and i bought two new rear tires, putting two new front ones on soon!

New wheels 265 / 35/ 18 - Falken F452's.

This type of uneven wear is weird.

Good lesson on changing tires when the wear mark is gone.

Even if that tire is the only one of the set to have wear like that and alignment is still a good idea. Just because the other 3 are wearing properly doesn't mean your alignment is within spec on all 4 corners. From the looks of the tread wear your toe is out of spec.
