BigTizzie I brought it to discount tire. I need all new TPM sensors anyway.

ADD: what MHZ do these sensors run at? OEM says 315 Mhz and RA says 433 Mhz.

$60 for a new sensor installed. They were so busy I had to put the tire back on myself!

ColdCase I've plugged several over the years and never had a problem. If you have a steel belted tire, they can be a pain to plug. You will probably need more than the cheap variety plug tool.

The best repair is a patch on the inside but plugs work fine in the tread area. They can eventually be cut by steel belts and perhaps fall out. Most shops won't do plugs now days due to some litigation awhile ago.

BigTizzie Jut got a flat on my Cooper rear tire. Found some sort of nail in it.

Put the temporary spare tire on.

All the tire shops are swamped! Anyone try and plug a tire at home? Did it work for long? These tires are 2 years old.

I see some take the tire off and plug it from the inside. Better idea have the pros do it? Discount tire is my go to peeps.

You need to provide more info. They are probably great on the road, but wonít be worth much off-road.


I swear itís all over Internet forums; people canít seem to do any research on their own or use the search function. So annoying.

DerekWildstar Update on the Nokian WR G4 SUV tires:

My wife has been raving about the performance of these tires in the rain (a dramatic improvement from the useless Goodyear Forteras that were OEM to the vehicle). Now that we're in the winter weather, I can offer some further feedback. We were up in the Adirondacks after a recent snowfall, and the ground was mostly hardpack snow, ice, and slush. The Nokians did very well, and at no point did my wife feel a loss of control of her vehicle.

She was driving through a snowstorm today and called to rave about the tires' performance in the white stuff. Her biggest compliment was the way the vehicle cut through the lines of slush between lanes in the interstate - the previous tires would make the vehicle jerk as it cross the line of slush. With the Nokians, she said, "I saw the slush, and I heard it, but I didn't feel it at all." So far, so good with these tires.

zanthipal Waiting on delivery of my 2020 Trailhawk, and plan is to put some 265/65 tires on some Black Rhino Overland wheels, which poke out a bit more than stock. Has anyone run into any warranty problems due to using non-oem size tires or wheels? Don't want to risk it.

If you want exceptional AT tires, Look at the Falken wildpeak, Pirelli Scorpion AT, Continental AT and a few other P rated tires. NOT LT.

Although it's a unibody and not body on frame, it still weighs in at more than 5000lbs. That requires at least XL load rated tires or you're going to severely reduce the treadlife of the tires.

Those going offroad into areas with sharp rocks and/or tree limbs/roots need a heavy sidewall tire with puncture resistance. I've seen too many Jeeps and SUVs venturing off into the mountains or woods with flat tires. Yes they ride a bit harsher on the road, but I'll take that over changing out a flat on the trail any day. I've done that once many years ago and don't plan on doing it a again ever.

KCZ After discussing local experience and availability with my tire dealer, I decided to go with Pirelli Scorpion All Terrain Plus. The treads aren't as aggressive for winter driving as the Cooper Discoverer AT/W 's that I love on my Xterra, so I hope I'm happy with the Pirelli's. Will report back after some winter driving.
