Conclusion: I would like a $600 refund for the tires, $400 for the damaged rim, $200 for the installation and balance.

I purchased 4 new tires 11/2017 but didn't install them until 3/18. 4/18 I was out for a casual drive when the front tire blew out.
I first thought I may have run over something in the road. After pulling over I noticed how the tire literally shredded around the rim, which unfortunately were damaged as well. I noticed the date stamp on the tire was 3/12. I checked the other 3 tires and they had the same date stamp.
As an automotive technology student, I know it's against the law to sell tires as "new" that are more than 5 years old. I won't drive long distance and avoid highways for fear I may have another blow out and possibly lose control of my vehicle. I'm not able to afford more new tires since as a "poor" college student, another $600 is hard to save up. I contacted Simple Tire (twice between 4/18 and the end of 5/18) with my complaint and was told they would look into it.
Its been 2 months and I have not heard back from them. I would like all four tires replaced or a refund of my money so that I can purchase "new" tires from an honest replicable company.
Reason of review: Bad quality.
Monetary Loss: $1200.
Preferred solution: Full refund.
I didn't like: Poor customer service, Quality of product poor, Old product sold as new, Difficult to contact directly only email.
