No personal attack in that post. Everything I just posted is true. Your posts have been personal attacks against me and anyone who disagrees with you. Would you like me to re-post your diatribe against Canadians for newer forum members to see? Thanks for verifying your mental issues. Seek professional help.

Yet another post from my stalker and another personal attack. He also has a need to get the last word. In part to add to his post count so he can be the #1 contributor on the forum. Quite the achievement.

Please do. You’ll get another post in so you can be assured of the top contributor spot once again.

I have absolutely no issues with your copying and pasting my posts. After all you are the best copy and paster I have seen on any forum.
However don’t do what you typically do and delete what you disagree with. What I’m saying is don’t leave out the part in which your fanboy from Canada bashed the United States. I completely understand your pretend standing here is very important to you though. So important you had no issues with a Canadian basing the United States as long as he agrees with you on the Dunlop’s.

Your usual tactic is copying and pasting while eliminating the source or parts you disagree with.

Well gentlemen, back on topic, It is pretty clear that Infiniti dealers are well aware
of the common problems with the Dunlop SP Sport 5000 RF tires...They have
begrudgingly admitted to me that there are known issues with these tires
in particular but Infiniti corporate seems to turn a bind eye on the subject...

This really solidifies the arguments against the Dunlops...when you have dealers
admitting to it's repeat/loyal customers that there is indeed a real problem and a
problem that can create a potential safety risk, then yeah shame on Infiniti and
Dunlop for refusing to fix the problem.

Every time I have leased a Q50 with these problematic tires they certainly did
recommend buying a tire and wheel insurance package at extra cost of course.
To me this Indicates a known problem by Infiniti...

As a matter of fact, it seems the wheels Infiniti uses on its Q50 Sport models
are also problematic as well, all four of the wheels on my current 2016 Q50
SS were bent as noted by the tire technician when he replaced the blowouts
on the car...Have any of you gents experienced issues with the wheels as well ?

I'm sure there are some Infiniti owners that have not experienced these issues
with the wheels and tires, but sadly are in they extreme minority...

Keep in mind I'm in my 50's and don't drive my car hard by any means and I
don't put much over 9K or 10K miles per year on it...I'm also a licensed drivers
education Instructor with over 30 years driving experience. I also do my own
maintenance and repairs with a technical and drafting background and I'm
fairly well versed in the automotive world.

Thanks gents.

I haven't bent a rim, had a flat or any side wall failures in over 18,000 miles but I have different tires. You must have some pretty bad roads in NJ. Did you buy your car used? If bought used, could the wheels have been bent by the previous owner?

No, all have been brand new from Pepe Infiniti in White Plains since the 2014 model year...

The tire tech did mention that he has seen it before on the Infiniti's Q50's
and Q60's but not usually on all four wheels...

Yeah, the NY metro roads are rather pitiful, I've been to third world nations
with much better paved roads.The use of enormous amounts of rock salt
used during winter season doesn't help road conditions either.

It was quite noticeable when the tech was changing all four tires and then
put the on the Hunter tire/wheel balancer on my current 2016 Q50 SS
that's heading back to the dealer, then I'll be picking up a new 2020
Red Sport in about a week...

I have never bought a car or SUV in which the dealership didn’t try and sell the wheel and tire insurance. I have never known anyone that purchased a car that it was not offered to them. Shame on any dealership that doesn’t try to sell wheel and tire on any vehicle from a VW Bug to a Mercedes S Class.

Again not saying the Dunlop’s are the best RF’s by any stretch. But a good or even half decent salesmen can turn your question that implies issues with the tires to his monetary advantage.

Yep, seems like nothing has changed, how Infiniti continues to put these garbage tires
on $60K vehicles is beyond me, yet here we are...

My 2020 RS AWD came with these sorrowful Dunlop SP Sport 5000's so I know what
to expect sadly, It is only a matter of time before they fail and fail badly. They are just
plain unsafe, come spring time I will swap them out with Conti's non run flats or some
other well rated non run flats.
