Flat Tire

Woke up this morning with what looks like someone put a screw driver through my tire! Anyone know where to get a new stock tire for 2011 Jeep Liberty JET besides the dealership? Goodyear Wrangler HP p245 50r20. I have checked tirerack and those sites, but not much around.

don't repair it if the puncture is in the sidewall. Try a Goodyear dealer...

cant plug it...it is the sidewall and too big. Stupid kids around here vandalize cars every weekend. My brother's car (he lives with me) window was smashed a month ago. Someone took a knife to it.

Replace tire, then consider relocating?

hahaha...I wouldn't mind doing that. Unfortunately the mortgage on the house doesn't relocate that easy.

try craigslist. might get lucky. a lot of people "take off" new tires in order to replace them with larger, more aggressive ones.

what size is your spare? is it full size? if so, heck put that on and find a decent off brand to use as the spare via local used tire shop.

I'd spend a few nights laying in wait with a 12 gage full of rock salt and put two in each of their hind ends. Nothing like a few ounces or holy crap that hurt like a mofo but can't kill me to put the fear of god in a teens butt. I know it worked back when we were allowed to actually correct your neighbor's kid when they screwed up without worrying if they parents were going to get all butt hurt and sue you. In fact, I'm going to go get some rock salt shells today. Or I'll make sum if need be. But the little bastards need a lesson in respect for other people's property.
