Default Tube Failures Metal Stem 21" Made in EEC

I have experienced three tube failures with metal stem tubes 21" marked "MADE IN EEC".

Has anyone experienced similar problems with these tubes and are the Dealers still selling tubes from EEC?

The car is a driver and has been to French Lick IND, Gettysburg PA, Mount Washington and the Hudson River Tour.

when I installed new tires they are 19", on my T/S in 2009 or 10, that is the tubes I got, I went thru 7 in less than a month - they are junk, throw them out your life more important. I installed my old tubes. A few years later I discovered Berts sells a radial tube, the best you can buy!

Brattons has tubes made in U.S.A. You had from ??.. But there is a correct way to install the metal stems if you are doing it yourself..
