So my less than two month old Ascent got a nail. Is it patchable?? I’m hoping it is but I’m assuming the worse and I might have to replace it. I only have about 1300 miles, so I hope just one tire can be replaced. ?? Automotive tire Wood Rim Tints and shades Auto part


Any tire experts that can chime in, please? I’m taking it to Firestone in the morning.

Also if I do have to replace it should I try to get the same OEM tire??

Too hard to determine from a picture. But with 1300 miles a new tire will be fine. You're 2% into the life of the tire.

Yeah, it looks too close to the sidewall to patch. Hard to tell for sure.

But for the love of god, do not go to Firestone. Go to a better tire dealer! When they went to patch a tire for me they knocked off the wheel weights so the wheel was totally unbalanced.

If there's a Discount Tire near you, they'll take care of it for free.

They were able to patch it.!! Thank goodness! I understand your concerns with Firestone, I don’t generally like Firestone, but this one has been really good over the years with minor work I’ve needed done. This one has always been very upfront with me and helpful. But thank you all I was iffy on it to.
