It used to be important to keep tread depth similar in AWD vehicles. Not sure if modern traction control can compensate for this these days, but if I had to replace a tire on any of my Jeeps, I'd definitely look into getting the tire shaved to match the others.

TireRack will "shave" a new tire for you. Perhaps a shop near you can do the same to the tire you're getting replaced? Cool that they're giving you a new one (well, not giving, I guess you paid for it up front)!

I hate to just replace one tire at this point. Anyone know of any warranty or deals that are out there. These tires are not cheap. Do you think the Jeep dealer is a good option?
Optimistic expectations on tire life... Just replaced mine; worn out at 21k... I'm glad you had the warranty!

Re: Nail in Tire

I'm glad I have the warranty too. Went into the dealer today for an oil change and tire rotation. They told me that the other three tires were shot and shouldn't waste the time balancing them. He also said I shouldn't be running the new tire with the old ones due to the wear and potential differential damage. I wish I would have known that two weeks ago. I would have left the damn nail in the tire. Anyone know where to get the best price on three tires?

I was going to get the rim and tire package but chose not too. The package doesn't covers "oooops" with the rims. Only if you hit a pothole and it cracks or gets bent. Doesn't cover curb rash.

Re: Nail in Tire

TECH and Truflate sell a patch with a attached stemmed plug. Works wonders..
