    Was backing out onto the road and heard a screeching noise. Checked it out, and found a 6 inch NAIL that the tire must have thrown up which penetrated the inner fender about 1 inch. Barely missed the INTERCOOLER SCREEN!!!!!!!! Check this out!!!!!!! The head of the nail was facing the tire and just rubbing. image.jpg

    If you have a Les Schwab by you, they will usually fix it for free whether they installed or not. I have been a loyal customer of theirs because they have always been there for me even when I have stock factory tires.:)

    I had 400 miles before my 1st spike in the rear tire. Pressure warning went off luckily I was close to home. Pulled in the garage just in time to jack her up and pull it off. Discount fixed it for free. Those guys rock
