Damnit, I was driving home from a rave Sunday morning (at 7AM) and I hit a raised curb. Not as high as a normal curb, but it was a little island in the middle of a parking lot.

I hit it hard enough that within two blocks my tire was flat.

Anyone know if that's covered? Is there road-hazzard insurance on our tires with the warranty, or did I just pay an extra $200 for that party?

I don't have the papers in front of me at work, but there is a separate Michelin sheet in the owners manual.

That sir is an extra $200 from your pocket. Road hazard is not covered. I had to replace a tire already and I made sure to buy road hazard coverage at the same time for any future problems.

Damn, yep I called the dealership and the tires are not covered. My local shop quoted me $300 installed for one tire. Guess I'll have to shop around a bit...

How bad an idea would it be to get something like a Yokohama for one tire and rotate the back tires to the front? Ghetto... I'll probably just buy another MPS.

<sigh> So I got a tire put on for $254, but after I got out to check out the car, it's the WRONG tire! It's a Michelin Pilot Sport Rib, the Porsche OEM tire. :roll:

They said to go ahead and drive on it, and they'd locate me the correct tire.

Funny thing is, it seems to get all squirley on hard acceleration in 1st and 2nd now, wiggling back and forth like the tires are gripping differently... probably would not happen with a LSD or the correct tire.

I paid $217 for the tire, I'll have to order from tires.com next time.

Too funny...same thing happened to me. Sears finally got it right and ordered me the right one though.
