What a shame Leaburn...That piece of glass looks to be in the side of the tread....not actually the sidewall...Can't it be patched from the inside and saved?...at least for a spare?

At least it won't be out of place, like it would have been if they had 20K miles on them. Still a bummer, but the wheels still look great. Kinda answers some questions as to what kind I want to put on my wagon.

My cost is 174.90 taxes included..
There goes the money I made delivering pizza this weekend.
Just cannot seem to get ahead.
But at least when I do deliver I will put on the old cop rims and used 2157015 tires I can grab from the scrap pile.
I will no longer use the new rims and tires delivering.
At least it is for only a few hours an night on weekends only.
Bottom line I need a 4 cyl beater box to deliver in.
The wagon is a big hit with the pizza customers (mostly college students) and that is reflected in the good tips I recieved.
I was averaging 4.18 per order in tips.
I have a small area to cover  (mostly college campus of 3 major colleges) so the wagon does not get  driven hard at all.
I take my time 'cause speeding is just not worth it.
Starting in 1973, Domino's Pizza had a guarantee that customers would receive their pizzas within 30 minutes of placing an order, or they would receive the pizzas free. The guarantee was reduced to $3 off in the mid 1980s. In 1992, the company settled a lawsuit brought by the family of an Indiana woman who had been killed by a Domino's delivery driver, paying the family $2.8 million. In another 1993 lawsuit, brought by a woman who was injured when a Domino's delivery driver ran a red light and collided with her vehicle, the woman was awarded nearly $80 million, but accepted a payout of $15 million.[48] The guarantee was dropped that same year because of the "public perception of reckless driving and irresponsibility", according to Monaghan.

$175 your cost for 1 tire! Tire prices have gone through the roof lately due to the price of oil rising. Why is it then when oil prices eventually go way down tire prices won't?

Man that's a real bummer about the piece of glass in the side wall....ain't that how it always works....old tires will run forever with no damage...as soon as new tires go on you pick something up.

Hope your "hard luck" story work with customer service/PR.
