I have a small screw in my 2015 Toyota Corolla S Plus tire. Do I have to replace the tire?
I took the car to the dealer and they stated that the entire tire had to be replaced because it couldn't be repaired. I don't understand how a small screw in a tire would make the tire useless. Is there a way to have it repaired or do I need to have it replaced? Thank you.
If the screw is in the sidewall, even down close to the tread, it is illegal to repair. If it's in the tread I think they are just trying to sell you a tire. Or don't have the tools for tire repair, dealers don't fix anything, they replace. Go to a tire shop and have it repaired
The screw is not on the sidewall. I will take it to a repair shop. Thanks for your advice and for saving me a couple hundred dollars.
Dig out all your paperwork, you may have a road-hazard warranty. Regardless, Toyota does not cover tires, the manufacturer does. I don't know about 2015 but Corollas used to come with Goodyear Eagle LS, that do have that. It will be separate from sales contract, but in there somewhere
Good idea. I'll check the paperwork. Thanks.
