I had a stupid flat tire on my truck today going to my job's office. I was entering the south 405 junction on the 118 west, I was going 35 mph and they had one lane shut because there were street sweeping trucks ahead of us. Well, I started to hear a thunking noise but I thought it was the dump truck ahead of me. Well, the freeway opened up and I pick it up to 70mph, then my tire pressure sensor beeps for 6 seconds straight. I used my rear view mirrors to examine my tires and my driver rear tire was flat! I pull off the freeway on Nordoff and into a parking lot and changed in my spare tire. I look at the damage, it looks like a 4 inch long gash that goes all the way to the wire frame of the tire. WTH would do that, and I was going only 35 mph when I heard a noise! UGH! Well, I felt good because I changed my tire in under 15 minutes and was back on the road. *Sigh* AAA would of taken 2 hours. lol
Now I have a stupid SR-A and 3 Conti's and I don't roll like that. I have my 4 22'' rims w/ brand new Yoko's in the garage and I'm about to change them over. lol Since its So-cal and winter season is over, I just might do that. lol:)

Probably driving 70 miles per hour caused your huge gash? what does your rim look like
No damage on the rim.....it was literally on the middle of the threading. But, on the bright side, I just put my 22'' rims back on, and my truck looks awesome! lol

So Cal winter? :lol:

Even if you go up to Mammoth, a set of winter tires seems wasteful to me.

But hey, its your money.

Who said I had snow tires? lol I use my stock ones for winter because I travel more, I throw on my 22'' rims when summer rolls around. I heard snow tires are cheap and almost like plastic. True anyone?
