    Nail in tire, replacement options

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Picked up a nail this morning and by the time tpms caught it and I pulled over, tire sidewall was damaged. Tires are discontinued conti dws w 5/32 to 6/32 tread. Concerns around rolling circumference and Quattro.
    Options:
    Replace all 4 but shop can only get 3 right now (dws06) - replace 2 and replace other 2 in a few days? Is there an issue w difference front to rear??
    Replace the one, but would want to have it shaved to match the other 3? Assuming I can find someone to shave it...
    Donít drive until I can replace all 4 at the same time?

    Thinking option 1 unless someone can advise different. Iím on mobile right now so research ability is limited. Thanks in advance.

    At 5-6/32nds your at that cusp of almost needing new tires anyway, I say go with option 1. They will tell you to replace the rears first for safety.

    What size tires? I have two Michelin Pilot SuperSports 255-35-19 sitting in my garage with 5/32" tread left. I will sell you for $75 plus shipping if you want.

    I also have two Michelin Pilot A/S 3+ with more tread if you want all season tires.

    Go option 1. As Hey suggests, youíre on the cusp of new tyres all round anyway. Thereís no issue front to back, only side to side.

    Thanks for the quick replies. All good, went back by the tire shop, 4 DWS06 here tomorrow. Went 285, in stock and actually cheaper than 275.

    Nah, 20x10 vorsteiners. So the 285 will actually square up the sidewall a little.
