Looks like you guys either need to stop dropping nails in your yard, or stop driving near construction zones…

I've gotten screws in my SS tire and it was all because I dropped a couple of screws….

At 250 miles, my dad noticed the right rear tire was low. After further inspection, he found a screw in the tread near the sidewall. Ended up buying a new tire. At 250 miles. Grrr.
I am keeping the tire. I think I'll hang it on the wall of my man cave and use it to keep my wallet and keys in. That, or use it as a conversational piece on my coffee table...

Ok man you cursed me,,,,, I went out today to take my Saturday Cruise around South Florida and my TPS told me there was only 16psi in my left rear. I figure you owe me a new tire,,,lol. Can you plug a tire like this, or is it an automatic
replacement.

They get expensive... i had less than 100 miles on mine and picked up a screw in the l/r side wall. I was lucky and picked my tire up for 350.

...I swear, every time I get a set of new tires on a ride a screw or nail gets picked up...I feel your pain brother. It never happens to me with a factory set however, go figure...

Guess nobody knows if you can plug it. I plug everything from heavy haulers for high way use to wheel barrel tires. I dont see why the hell not, maybe not legal for some tracks, but good enough to roll the family down I-5 at 80 MPH...

I normally patch tires which works better than a plug for street tires, but I'm probably going to buy a new tire since the car will eventually see track use.

On a different note; has anyone noticed how loud these tires are? They really generate a lot of road noise which is typical for Goodyear tires, but these are loud.
