less than 2 minutes it was down to the ground, i wonder if that can be fixed. I wont have my summer tires for another 2 weeks or so. if it cant be fixed i wont bother with new tires at the moment, i'll prolly drive the escalade till the new rims come in.

That would be a big patch depending on how far it punctured... you didn't get hazard insurance by any chance did you?

it will be patched, shitty thing is the tire have many other cracks on the inside, luckly it will be holding fine after they patch it

yeah i do have it part of warranty and insurance both but its not worth the headache of calling them to see it and what not, they'll take forever so im paying for it out of my pocket


Jon, i wish you told me that last night

A while back my wife had a bolt stuck in one of her tires. Could heat it clicking while we were driving.
