I had a screw in my rear passenger side tire which casued a slow yet obvious air leak. I went to my Porsche dealer to have it repaired but they said they don't repair. They would temp patch the hole but said since the tire was "compromised", I should get a new tire. The hole was in the center of the tread, so they said I should go to Discount Tire to get a "high speed patch" put on. I did that. The tires only have 2000 miles on it.

So, what is ok? Stay with the tire that's patched, or get a new tire? Would I need 2 new tires, one for each side? :cursing:

If you mainly drive the car on the road instead of tracking it, I'd opt for the patch myself. A patch should be good for ordinary road use where as if it was a track car, I'd get new tires. Heck it might be a good time to buy a set of track rims and tires and keep these for daily use. *grin*

As for taking the car to Discount Tire, I'd recommend instead taking it to NTB. I've had a very satisfactory customer relationship with NTB over the past seven years. NTB service is leaps and bounds above Discount Tire in my opinion.

dj - some highways have wide open long stretches where I can get up to 140 for a short time, but I don't do that in traffic or bad weather conditions. 80mph isn't really reckless, but I know what your saying...
