    Possible "dumb question". Buying one new tire

    I have two year old tires on my car...maybe 8K at most on them. A nail ended up too close to my side wall so I have to replace one tire. Does this mess anything up on the Civic [computer or what not]? Tread on the tires are still pretty deep.

    It can be done, though generally it's recommended you replace two at a time. If you just can't do 2, make sure the new tire is on the rear to start with and pay attention to wear.

    The replacement will be on the left rear.

    On a side note,.....it REALLY sucks to get a nail in a tire without very many miles on it and it not be able to be fixed. :-(

    Could have been me. Tire got a nail stuck it in, got patched. Few weeks later, notice same tire now has a lump in the side wall and get 2 new tires. 2 weeks after that, front passenger now has lump in sidewall and have to get new front tires. Really hated life during that.

    Put new tires on my car this time last year. About 4 months later I discovered a nail in one of the tires, less than 1000 miles.
    Lucky it could be patched. But I was not happy.

    So I feel ya...

    So,....Big O Tire ordered the wrong tire. It seems that they weren't able to get my tire [Kumho PA31]. I didn't want a mis-match tread. I managed to find one on Walmart.com and am having it sent to my nearby Walmart. Hopefully the plug will hold for a week. If not, I guess I'll have to spare it up.

    I am curious what 'too close to the sidewall' is.

    I have successfully plugged tires that have had said offending pointy object in the first valley of tread, and the tires have lasted right to the end of their naturally useful life.

    I cannot speak to the outer tread block, though. Knowing me, however, if the hole was not right at the outer edge I would plug it and drive it until it failed, which could be never.

    How are you liking the PA31s, btw?

    The nail was pretty close to the end of the tread near the sidewall.

    So far I like the tires well enough. Has anyone heard of Nitto tires and are they okay? After a couple more years I'll probably change out all my tires.
