No that is normal. Cadillac will attest that it is because od abusive or aggressive driving. That is what happens to a heavy car on such soft tires.:hide:

I have a couple of rear runflats in my garage that looked like that at 5,000 miles. I have yet to venture into the sport of Drifiting, but based on your photos, I may wait a while longer.

Nice, use a little Armor-All and they should be as good as new.

Classic case of not rotating at the Cadillac's recommended 3K mile interval. Really, guys, be a little more attentive...

Did they still run? Being runflats and all I suppose they should.

nono no runflats here, they lasted 1/2 of a event. while the 555s and the T1S will last at least 2 events. The tire here are Kumhos 712, great grip tire and smokes like no other, but can not handle such high heat and such a strong camber/caster/toe setup.
