Arrgh! Just got back from the dealer for a slow leak in my tire and they told me that the hole was too close to an earlier patch to repair. They sold me a new tire for 282. Just wondering whether anyone has used an outfit like Tire Rack and had the tire shipped to a local reputable tire shop in the Bay Area for installation? The tire itself looks to be almost $100 cheaper by mail order, but after you add in shipping, installation, and disposal the difference is smaller.
