    How long can I drive on this tire before the tire pops? I've been driving on it for about 2 weeks now...[​IMG]

    The dealership says it's not under warranty, and i don't have the $ right now to fix it

    I thought you were talking about a different kind of bubble that was right in front of you.
    I was dissapointed when I didnt see any pics.

    you need to replace that quick...

    do you really want to be cruising at 75 and have it blow on you?

    if you don't have $ to get a new one, buy a used one from the tire shop...
    DON't go to the car dealership, they'll overcharge.

    Change that tire yesterday. A friend of mine hit a pothole, spun out, hit a phone pole, and died 6 days ago. And that was without having a blowout.Don't be dumb. Please, just don't be dumb man...

    where u live at?

    around here theres atleast 2-3 used tire shops on every main strip. i never buy new unless i get CRAZY discounted deals, and thats rare. i just bought a newset of barely used full treaded white wall junts for my caprice, paid 120 for all 4 mounted [​IMG]


    i would look in urban areas for used tire shops

    I buy "new" used tires damn near twice a year. There's at least 3-4 tire spots where you can cop used wherever you are. There's moreTire Barns than Starbucks.

    I would look around before going the online route on tires bc you're still gonna have to pay to get it mounted

    if you're only going to buy one tire, don't buy it used. your traction (not traction pattern, but the actual life of the tire) andthreadwear won't match..

    if you can buy two new or such.

    oh, and you don't need high performance. they'll just wear out quicker....

    get a tire for like $60 each....



    oh, and OP, i hope your screen name doesn't apply to you after your tire.... [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Yeh man you need I get that taken are I right away. If you are broke as joke, you an always get
