Just my luck..... nail in tire

So i was working in the garage and hear a pssssssssss noise. looking to find what it is a f-ing nail stuck in the corner edge of my tire. This sucks only 1600 miles and a tire that not repairable. So now im looking for a L/R tire if anyone has one they would like to sell. If i end up buying new im buying drag radials and i have a slightly used R/R tire for sale. lol

If its at the edge of the tread where it meets sidewall it can't safely be patched.

I bought new wheels and tires had them mounted and the car looked great. Went to Walmart in the morning and I come out and my front tires r slashed. Yeah that's a great way to start your morning lol. This happened yesterday .

That's awful. Why would anybody do such a thing to harm someone for no reason except for jealousy. Maybe their security cameras will show who did it?

That sucks. Few yrs back i bought a brand new set of 315's for my V and not 5 minutes after i left the shop my back end started flopping all around and thump thump thump. Ran over a damn 1/2 bolt in the RR. Of course i declined the tire insurance....

Bleh..

no luck its a brand new walmart and i parked far away so they looked and said we cant even see your car from the front camera. cost me 150 to get the wheels put on the first time cuz a friend helped me, then 90 for the flat bed and another 118 for the new tires... i wanted to shoot some body.

I found a screw in my left rear Friday!

I had it patched and it seems to be holding air.

I am taking it to an auto cross this weekend, we will see how it does after it gets a load on it and some heat built up.

I went through 16 tires before befriending a tire distributor who said and sent me to a repair shop. He did say not to track on those tires though.

Jealous people do stupid things. We all need to learn to appreciate what others have. Sorry that happened to you.

Is that the stock ZL1 tire? Now I know why the Canaro beats the Boss on the track... Wow!
