Agreed, I expect little from the dealer if mine do it. Hankook warranty, I hope would fix it though. Upgrade to AT/2 for free, maybe? Depends on the mileage is, probably % discount.Not arguing with you, at all. Just throwing info out to you.....
And I hope you get good results from your dealer....but he/they will more than likely push you off to the tire manufacturer claiming it is their product and not a Ford product. Tire info in your owners packet will always point you to the tire manufacturer if there's a problem with them.
To answer your question yes. The truck has 2100 miles now. That pic was taken with 250 miles on the clock. I've driven almost 2000 more miles since- in 5 weeks. And yes, I have cleaned them there times so far with purple power and a brush. Then dressed them. They look fine until dressing wears off. Before dressing they look bad. And I do my ball sack on the daily. At least.so, have any of you gave them a good wash or two and a good scrubbing, you know, like you should do to your ballsac at least once a week?
250 miles makes me think you havent.
how about try that, post the results.
otherwise its time to turn this thread into another damper debate.
I had no problems, aesthetic or otherwise, with the Hankooks on my former 2014 Explorer or my current 2019 Ranger. Even though this probably has no effect on performance or durability, it looks terrible, and you should not have to put up with this on new tires--or have to constantly clean and dress them to keep them looking presentable. New vehicles (and their tires) are supposed to look sharp--that is why we pay a premium for them over used!with 250 miles on my brand new 21 fx4, i saw this after driving 200 miles in the rain. i have since washed/dressed tires and it goes away only to come back as the dressing washes off. Every tire exhibits this to some degree. defect or something oxidizing out of the tire??
I agree with you on the white letters, by the way. I either flip them or replace them with BSW on my vehicles!Agreed, I expect little from the dealer if mine do it. Hankook warranty, I hope would fix it though. Upgrade to AT/2 for free, maybe? Depends on the mileage is, probably % discount.
Personally I hate the white letters showing. I didn't get the dealer to flip them in the purchase price, because I thought they'd grow on me. Since I have gone more black, and they will stand out even more now when they go back on.
I'll be happy if they flip mine for free, lol.
