Nails SUCK

Arrrrrgh, i just got my ST and was so proud of it, then BOOM nail in the driver rear tire. Now I'm on my spare and it looks so bad . To top it off my exact tires i cant seem to find. So I'm looking for ones that match my tread design or close to it. However the closest one is mixed on the reviews. Some had cupping issues other's swear by it. but I'm ordering it soon. Friggen nails.



Sumitomo HTR Z II - $62.00

This is going to be my first paycheck on my new job, which is only for two days work. so my cash is very very strained.

What tires do you actually have on your car and yes, nails do suck.

Well, i don't really know what spawned the idea but i stopped into a "Discount Tires" place on I-41. They looked at the tire and quickly said it would only need to be patched. I had of course asked for a new tire in this size, they insisted it would be cheaper for me and would would be safe under aggressive or high speed driving. So, i paid $24.00 to have it plugged and remounted. Car seems fine, and i saved $38.00.

That's just walmart saying to spend money on there brand new tire; walmart couldn't even tell you the difference between tylonel and advil. The tire is repairable, but if you want to spend on a new set of tires feel free to do so
