I knew it! but didnt want to say.

I am still thinking it was down to improper storage before you bought them. As you know heat cycles can effect the properties of the compound so too can fluctuating and/or excessive storage temperatures.

Will you appeal? I hope you reach a more favorable conclusion.

My tyres were made just nine weeks before they were fitted, but as you say, they could have still been stored by Event Tyres outside in minus temperature, instead of a climate controlled warehouse.

Tyres are being sent back to Germany for lab analysis, but I don't get to know the results

Garage List
"Give him a refund to keep him quiet...but tell him nothing. We don't want anyone knowing our tyres might be suspect"... seems to be the scenario here. Appalling.
