I have a 2002 Ford escape with 7800 miles on it. Problem is (I think it is a problem) that it needs new tires already sicne the ones on it will not pass inspection. The truck is not beat in any way and I do equal city and highway driving. My cousin has the same SUV and had to also put new tires on at 8K miles. Was wondaring if any others have escapes and have had to changes tires so quickly. Dealer tells me this is normal wear for the tires. They are Generals!
