Honestly, I dont know what happened. I checked it and I didnt see anything. Ill take it to a place near my house.Define *fixed*. If you just have a nail or something in the tread, and need it patched, then any tire place will do it. I think the Goodyear place near me does it free. However, most legit places won*t plug, and they won*t do it on the sidewall or if the puncture is between the sidewall and the nearest groove. If you want to plug it, you can buy kits and do that yourself.
Your TPMS is pretty sensitive and you should see TPMS warning light pretty quick after any of your tires got a nail. I wonder why you didnt see the warning before its too late?So, I was told that it couldnt be fixed. I may have been driving with a nail in it but the problem didnt manifest till yesterday. I need a new tire. Get one from Mazda or go with the best deal?
Thumb up to Americas Tire (in Bay Area, Discount Tire Store in Texas) too! And I did exactly the same, using only Discount Tire for any tire purchases and services. Its nice to get credit from unused miles from mileage warranty and apply to new tire purchase. The nationwide network is very convenient too.American Tires does match price from TireRack.com.
Besides, you need to have someone local to install them....
I bought at least 6 sets of tires from TireRack.com so far.
If American Tires match the deal, usually I would go with them.
Save some troubles.
Costco has good deals, but the selection is limited.
I am picky about tires.
I swear that light didnt come on till yesterday when I was already on my way home.Your TPMS is pretty sensitive and you should see TPMS warning light pretty quick after any of your tires got a nail. I wonder why you didnt see the warning before its too late?
I took it there. They did not offer to fix it. They said I needed a new tire.Honestly, Id take damaged tire to Americas Tire to have a second opinion. If they think its fixable, theyll fix it for free.
13,029.Your 2018 CX-5 Touring AWD has 225/55R19 tires. How many miles on your un-fixable tire?
Americas tire have the Toyo in stock. They quoted me for the one tire only, not 4. They didnt say I needed (rather, that I should) all 4 replaced.If you still have plenty of tread left, you may consider to get one OE Toyo A36 tire, and shave the tread to similar tread depth like others. Americas Tire in your area can order the Toyo tire for you and do the rest.
I wont.Dont go to your Mazda dealer for tire service.
Can't do that on an AWD system if there's too much variance in tread depth between all four tires, you'll burn out the system. Best thing to do is get a shaved tire from Tire Rack (been there, done that) or four new tires. O/P, I'm guessing there's a sidewall leak or a leak near the edge of the tread that's preventing a fix?If it was me, I would buy two Toyos. Have the America's Tire guy determine which of your three remaining tires is most worn and replace that one. Then put the two new tires on the rear.
Why on the rear? If it was FWD, I'd put two new ones on the front, not the rear.If it was me, I would buy two Toyos. Have the America's Tire guy determine which of your three remaining tires is most worn and replace that one. Then put the two new tires on the rear.
Every professional recommendation that I've seen states to put the newest/best tires on the rear; regardless of drive wheels.Why on the rear? If it was FWD, I'd put two new ones on the front, not the rear.
