So on my way back from Vegas last weekend I got a gnarly flat; luckily it didn't blow but all of the Nitro was out of the tire in 10 secs. SOOO I need to get a new stock tire, mount and balance and fill with Nitro.
My dealer does not do Nitro (same idiots who didnt enable my auto-tilt mirrors) and they want $200 + mount/balance for the stock tire. Costco does Nitro but does not sell Goodyears; Sears can get me the tire but no Nitro ($160 for the tire)...I am going to call BigBrand tires today, and check a couple other places. Has anyone bought a replacement stock 17" tire? I can get it shipped from Tirerack.com for $150, which seems high but I have never bought a stock tire before (is this a good excuse to buy new wheels??)
My second issue it the TPMS...please don't tell me I need to buy another one of those too??? Will they be able to just transfer out of blown tire and into new one? I did not drive more than 3 secs on a flat tire as I got over immediately when my buddies in the back said they heard and felt something. I will post a pic of the nail tonight...Fawker was a hook nail and punctured two spots so they can't patch it. Any help is grealy appreciated.
Anybody want to buy a set (4) of 17" 08 LTD wheels? They have 5K miles on them, but only 3 tires
