    tire warrenty

    So I go outside today and notice a freaking screw hanging out of my left rear tire on my 4 month old 2006 wrx.. Would anyone know know if this covered by the subaru warrenty? I 'm sure its not.. but I thought I might ask. It has less then 5,000 miles on it..

    Don't count on it being covered. Even manufaturing defects in tires won't be covered, they'll send you to the tire manufacturer in a case like that.

    Doubt it. Find some nice tires that you like, because you will most likely be replacing all four.

    It probably won't be covered but its a good time for a new set. IMO tires are the best mod for the WRX.

    its covered if you selected that as an extra option when your purchased the car. I pay an extra 45 dollars a month for my car and get oil changes, tire protection and a number of other services for free ( not really free but included in that 45 bucks that was tacted on to my payment)

    Have the tire patched from the inside at a tire shop. Putting a plug in damages the tire.

    as opposed to teh damage that is done... to do it correctly they should use a patch/plug combo that is available.. it is both.. so not only patches the inside but also fills the hole form the nail/screw...

    Take it to Discount Tire. They fix those for free. No really...for free. I've had 3 different leaks/nails in my Falkens and had them all fixed at Discount Tire for free. I will also be buying my new tires from them in the future due to the good service I've gotten from them.
