Yet Another Tire Rant

Pulling into my yard last night I got another Low Tire Pressure warning. I bought my 2013 Volt just over 1 month ago and this is the second puncture.

I attempted to plug the current hole, but no luck. There is a tear about 1/2 inch long right in the thin spot between the treads. The rasp from the plug kit went through it like it was tissue paper.

So now I'm waiting for AAA to haul Victor off to a local tire shop to be fitted with four brand-spankin'-new Bridgestone Ecopia 422 Plus at the OEM size.

I have almost 40k miles on my OEM tires, no flats, but I'm prepared for one. I have a $10 spare tire. That way I can remove the flat, take to Discount (free repair), and still be able to drive.

On the other hand, you drove over something large and sharp. I suspect other tires would have suffered the same fate.
42K for the original tires means they're about done.
My tire tread depth measure 7/32nds inch. Based on that, I'm only half way through the tires. I rotate every 7500 miles.
