Hey guys,

I got a sidewall tear on one of my Pirelli P7000 235/35/ZR19.

The tire had a little "bump" on the inside sidewall, that's what must have caused the sudden tear, I had the bump on that tire when I bought my set of wheels. I didn't think much of it then.

I know I will need a new tire. Where can I find one used? A new one costs $592 after taxes. :mad:

Any info is appreciated. Thanks!

I just wanted to get any info on some used tire places, ones that usually carry high performance tires. I've phoned around and had no luck.

Anyone have any hook-ups? Discounts?

:confused: I don't remember posting any pics of my car :confused:

But, thanks for the compliment.

Some tires have Warranty (like my S-03), check with them.

did you buy the tires new ? if so, alezone is right....it's called "road side insurance" (i think)...they measure how much tread is left on the tire and that determines the price of the replacement....i had a nail in one of my tires (from my old 16"s), i took it back to where i bought it and got a replacement for a fraction of the cost....i dont know if the warranty will cover side wall damamge though....worth a try

The tires are used. They came with my 19" rims.

Do you guys know of any places that sell used tires in the west end?

Thanks for all the info so far!

I have never seen a used 19 "
I think it is hard enough to get a 17" with good tread used.. I would think a person with these tires since they cost 600$ would ride them to the cords .

I just blew my tire a few nights ago. The rear camber is so bad the tire rides on the sidewall. The tread is perfect but the inner sidewall of the back tires are bald and it wore right down to the threads. Also the inner lip of the rear rims are scraped from the road because the tires are stretched and the camber is bad. My car sometimes rides on the rear rims when I go over the soft bumps.
