I'm always a little skeptical when they start adding extra parts to break (not that they are unreliable)
It happens... sucks though when its that new. Youre lucky it wasnt close to the edge otherwise that would have called for a new tire. did they just plug the tire ffrom the out side or did they actually dismount the tire and did a plug and patch from the inside. The plug and patch is more durable and dependable just my 2 cents.with 785 miles i picked up a nail today .took it immediately to a local independent tire dealer and had it fixed in 30 minutes .only lost 3 lbs. of air and found it by th enoise being made .it was a screw with a big head.
when the car was up on the lift i got underneath and i am impressed by the quality of the parts and the assembly.
also took a good look at the rear wheel steering . had no idea how they did this but in short it is nothng more than a hydraulic cylinder with extensions toward ech of the rear tires mounted on a bushing . and it is mounted on a separate plate behind the rear axle.
how it works i have no idea ...but it does work great .
That's right.Its been my experience with performance tires that they never plug, always remove and patch on the inside of the tire...and after reading the warning windshield sticker of low mileage on these tires...I would definitely put them in the performance ring.
