Flat tires, screws in tires, etc. This stuff happens. We all accept that as car owners. Just patch up and move on. I definitely wouldn't just replace one tire unless they were actually new, though.

I joined the club. I can tell I am getting older, normally don't go out to drive just to drive, said the heck with it and went to go take a cruise in the Mustang just a bit ago. I get in, low tire light is on. I start to think, naw, just off a little, temp changes sort of thing. Get about a half mile, paranoia kicks in and I pull in a parking lot. Sure enough, right rear is looooow. So I take it back home. Put air in it, as I am, I am checking the tire, sure enough, nail in it. Guess its off to the tire shop tomorrow. After the week I had, should have figured it wasn't over.

Me too. I had a flat from a screw within a week of purchasing the car. A couple weeks ago I rotated the tires myself and found two self tapping screws in two of them. Fortunately, neither was long enough to go through the tire and I just pulled them out.

yeah man, it sucks but tires live a rough life in some bad conditions. fwiw, I don't believe the Pirellis are discontinued, that being said, I don't believe they are that great a tire, they were loud and traction was average at best imo, especially for an expensive tire.......

3 nails in 40k miles. Thankfully all of them went into the tread. I'd never go anywhere without my tire plug kit since this thing didn't come with a spare tire.

Same thing just happened to me play by play. Same tire, same story. Im not sure if someone actually did this to my car... ill have to wait till morning and see if there is a nail or something in it. Right now its sitting in my garage with a flat. Im actually pretty worried about the rim being damaged from the weight of the car.
