I got a BIG staple in one of my 18" OEM tires. :evil: Disount Tire could not fix it. they said the holes were too close to patch. Anybody in DFW have a "extra 18" OEM tire for sale? Dont particulary want to spend $200 on a new tire, as Im trying to go to 20".

Staple=2 holes... they cannot put two patches that close together, as it will overlap. sux as only ~5000 mile on the tire.

They redrill the hole, as the're patch has a "cord". too close together and it will not lay flat. The patch is about the size of a quarter and the holes are 2" apart.

Well, I hated to do it, but my local Firestone had one of these 265/60/18 in stock. They matched Tirerack price. This $200 could have gown towards 20" or Stillen CAI box! :evil:

Murphy's law bit me for not purchasing a road hazard guarantee at the time of delievery.

For the archives...I should have bought the road hazard from day one...My Firestone dealer gave me a great deal to add it to all four tires. $12 bucks a tire!

I would suggest if you are planning on keeping your 18" tires to go through your local firestone to get this.
