A Flat!

Man, I really hate this:

On a Sunday no less. I think I ran over something pretty major too. When there is air in it, you can actually hear it leaking out.

Not to worry, the good lads at Americas/Discount Tire have me covered. When I bought these tires (Kumho Ecsta ASX) I paid a few extra bucks to get the good warranty from them. That means that if a tire goes bad and they can’t fix it, they replace it for free! Well, not quite free since I have to pay tax and the fees that go with, but I don’t have to pay for the tire.

And since these tires already have about 15K miles on them, I’m having them replace to keep the wear even. The last thing I want is to have 1 tire not wearing out like the others.

  1. Hey DB
    You are making me glad I bought the same tires from Discount Tire!!! Happy motoring

  2. I don’t have to. Discount Tire does that for me every 5K miles.

    But, remember, these are not runflats. But even when I had runflats, I still rotated them. Of course, I did it myself in the driveway. Back to front is all I ever did.
