Traveling fully packed back from Florida to NY in my 9 month old SC 2022 the muffler bracket comes loose and falls off the bracket causing it to lean against the tire which blew out immediately
We put bracket on enough to hold for 11 hrs and stopping to push it on every two hrs

Taking all luggage out to get to tools and lower the temp spare from underneath
Then driving to the nearest tire shop and getting whatever tire they had to make it home
It was proven this was a factory mistake and the muffler is under warranty but it has been a fight with Corp.
I would like to have all four tires replaced since I have now one Perelli and three Michelin

Still fighting for a mere $300 dollars for the tire I had to buy
Check your muffler brackets and don’t you think Corp should replace all four so I have the same tires same wear.

Three brackets the one closer to back bumper never installed right , the one by the back right tire came off
Muffler rubbed against tire ,, shredded
Really sorry to hear of your troubles, but I'm with the other members regarding more information and pictures on what actually happened. I look at your tire picture and for the life of me can't imagine what caused those punctures? There are no rotating wear marks on the tire that I can see from the tire spining while rubbing on something. :unsure:
