Ran over a shoe yesterday and got a flat. Aired it up, but could hear it leaking back out. Had no choice but to drive on a donut for 90 miles at max speed 50 mph. Now I must look at my warranty papers to see how they deal with tires. I can't be flossin on a donut.

I thought I saw in my manual when I sat down with the dealer that the Toyo's were warrantied, but I dont know bout the GY's.

I think all tires have some sort of warranty, BUT the way in which you can use it makes it worthless most of the time.

Not sure how you prove a flat is not just an occurence but rather a flaw...

It was a sneaker that I hit. I figure a tire shouldn't puncture on a sneaker. I dunno. I'll be mad if I have to pay a lot to get it fixed. The tires aren't even 2 months old.

Dealership couldn't do anything for me. Tires are just through the manufacturer. Turns out it punctured the sidewall so there's nothing they can do to fix it. Since the tires are so new I get a 50% prorated deal from Goodyear. It's still gonna cost 80-something bucks for one new tire, though. Since the tire model is so new they have to bring them in from California. At least Discount Tire got me a loaner in the meantime so I'm no longer rollin on a Krispy Kreme.
