Ran over some idiot's stuff (???) in the road tonight while changing lanes at 80mph :mad:

Now on my 3rd flat tire; first one was passenger rear the day I got the car, second was an NT01 on the passenger front that picked up a screw on track somehow, and now this one, the driver's rear.

Ugh.

At least it looks like this one will be able to be patched, as I can clearly identify the leak.

Going to Discount Tire first thing tomorrow AM to get it patched ::) ::) ::)

It can do either one. As of now I have just been airing up the tire and parking with the puncture facing down. There was other damage I didn't see w/ the wheel on the car, the whole tire will have to be replaced to the tune of $525 installed.

I hope my Ford tire warranty will cover this one; they covered the first one that got punctured.
 
Bummer. Good luck with the tire.

Didn't know Ford had a tire warranty. Can you give more details on this? Thanks.
 
That is cool they covered one, my bro had a tire explode one the way back from buying a motorcycle (it split at the seam in the belt) and both the manufacturer of the bike and the tire refused to cover it.

One? shiznit, this is the second one the tire warranty has picked up. So far it's saved me about $700 as the rears are $525 each installed!
 
Even better. I probably should have got the tire warranty, on my old car I got a screw in the sidewall the day before its first track day. Ended up having to get 4 tires because nobody had the right one in stock to install that day.
