Man, that stinks!
Those T/A's are a good tire.
Do you have road hazard coverage?

Most places will not warranty those T/As as they say they are also an off road tire. I have a set on my truck and love them. Good traction and they wear like iron.

That was key for where I got mine...wanted a warranty. Think I paid $100 for it, but that beats a new tire.

By the way, that sucks epe!

Did the bolt go through the sidewall???? If not go buy a plug kit and plug it.... It'll be good as new.... Takes about 5 minutes to do and save yourself the cash.... I always have a kit in the truck just in case this happens....

Love those rims! And the tires. I have A/T's on both Jeeps and the Envoy. The T/A's are sweet, but over kill for what I need. The A/T's are a nice compromise...

Nice tires! I bet it looked a lot better with air in it. You are not alone. Try running some parking lot sweeper trucks. They pick up everything. Difference is it is at slow speed and they don't sling it out of the tread like they would if you were driving road speeds. Just grind it in until you have a flat. Tire companies love me!
