I just had a six inch bolt puncture my rear tire on my 13 V sedan. I have about 3500 miles on the car. I am wondering if I should replace it with oem tire or swap both rears for new. Will the tread difference be a problem if I only replace the one with oem?
Tbh...at 3500 miles on my old ps2s I almost needed new tires...lol. I dragged then out to 8500...but u may feel a differnece. If you plan on replacing both, see if you can find the PSS. Better grip and tread life. I know they are on backprder, but discount tire just found me some in Houston and are having them shipped for installation Friday. Check around.
That is the tire I was thinking of. I have not tracked the car. So fairly normal driving except for some spirited acceleration. I just found a hole through the wheel also. I have the black wheels that came with the stealth blue. This will be a fairly expensive repair. Any ideas where I can purchase a matching wheel?
I'd just go thru my insurance and make them eat the wheel cost. Our wheels are expensive. You'll have to cover the tires...but w a low deductable, probably cheaper. Insurance covers wheel damage I assume?
I talked to my insurance agent and it looks like they will cover everthing. Minus deductible of course. I will try to price out the wheel first just to make sure. Another thread said gm parts direct but also said shipping is high. If anyone has an idea I would appreciate the input.
A local Wheels America has repaired some wheels for me, but not this unique color. You could call the nearest one to you. www.car-part.com lists a 19x10? (correct size?) satin graphite for $450, or $165 to recondition. (I'm afraid I'm not sure they can repair the hole you mention.)
The wheel is beyond repair for sure but thank you for the input
Never hurts to ask if you live near enough to one of the wheel repair places. There is another one called wheel collision somewhere in PA. I noticed that you didn't seem to notice the wheel damage until a later post, (possibly meaning it is not very big damage.)
If your deductible is small enough then maybe it's not worth the trouble to search for a repair place that can repair it, but if it is higher like mine, my last wheel repair, albeit for a 15" smart fortwo wheel, cost me about $130. I'm afraid I haven't had to buy a replacement tire for ours yet, so I can't really comment on how expensive those are though....
