Unless you get a tire warranty you have to buy new tires on your own. You have had a run of bad luck but $400 is not what tires cost. A new tire for your Explorer should be under $250. I would shop around or get a same size tire but not the OEM tire if it really is $400.

Remove the tire from the rim and have it patched from the inside.

Tires that have damage to the side wall can't be repaired.
