And wouldn't you know someone came in my Parking lot and slash one of them. that made me so mad, I was going to work and I keep hearing this noise, I said to myself oh, I hope it isn't my Motor. Well I didn't think it was my tires because I had just brought them. I got out of the car and looked down and the tire was flat. I inspected the tire because I couldn't see why it would be anything wrong with my tire. I could see where someone had litterally took a knife or something and punctured my tire. I don't bother anyone. But I talked to a Neighbor and he said the samething happened to him, someone put a hole in his tire too. So someone has been dong this randomly. What I want to know is do you think they will replace my tire? I hope the do. I am going to take the tire back where I brought it. I am going to cross my fingers.

I hope they replace it for you. Thats rotten for someone to do that. Sometimes people have nothing better to do then destroy other peoples property. I don't understand it. I never did mean rotten stuff like that. They will get theirs when they least expect it.

That's insane. I think people just enjoy going around and causing trouble. Now, I'm not so sure about whether or not they'd replace your tire or not. I'd maybe call them and see what they say. Maybe try calling the insurance company or something.

It woukd not be worth it to call Insurance Company. I just hope they are nice about it and give me another one. I am still paying for those tires I just got them. I have it right in my car I am going to take it back tomorrow. thanks for your input and I hope yu have a Happy Holiday.

I remember when I was little, the neighborhood that we lived in was so bad when my mom purchased new tires for her car, she had them put on the wrong side out. This way, no one could tell that they were new.

thats bad news,the roads are not so good here and often we have a flat tire.somebody throws some pins on the road(their idea of fun.sick,isnt it)and there we have to spend money.i think,that is one of the disadvantages of owning a vehicle.

Wow!! Sorry to hear that this had to happen to you. I know it is quite expensive to have to buy New tires as well as we just had to do the same thing as well. But for someone to go around slashing tires like this, that is Crazy. I hope that person ends up getting caught, and you were able to get the Tire replaced with no real problems on your end as well.

I don't think the car park is responsible for that, but you can try, good luck I hope you get a replacement but I don't think they will do it.

that's just so mean! It's really horrible how some people have no conscience sometimes--& you just bought new tires too! & with prices of everything these days, it really would make someone mad--I sure am crossing my fingers for you as well Marcie that they replace your tires--did you report it to the police? Hopefully they have a lead & catch those bothersome people--they should pay you back! Do update if they replaced y9our tires, ok? Hope you'll have a better day

It happened to another neighbor too, he told me they did it last night slashed his tire too. they are really getting bad around here. I hope when I get up to go to work my tires will be ok.

I really hope they will replace your tire. I think people are idiots, to vandalize tires the way they do, either by doing something to the tire, as was done in your case, or putting a nail in the road or something, so that something will be done to the tire while they're driving. That really really stinks!

I'm so sorry for coming in so late. I don't think they will do that as it is not manufacturing defect. Any way, what happened in your case. Did they replace the tire ? Did you catch the culprit ? Thanks.

I doubt the warranty will cover this. It usually covers road hazards - probably not vandalism. Sounds like a group of teenagers with too much time on their hands.Hope they get it stopped.

Hi ya marcia I am sorry to hear of this incident it such a costly inconvenience! I really don't think that they would exchange it free of charge in the UK as it was fine when you left their premises and anything that happens to it after that I don't think they can be held responsible and therefore are not required to foot the bill but things are different in the States - Good luck.

Oh that is so cruel, it is not like tyres are cheap in the first place and to have that happen is just beyond funny. I hope that you manage to get the tyre replaced but I just do not know if they will, hopefully though they will be able to do something for you.
