Well, I took it to both places. The dealer said it was not repairable. A new tire will be 4490.00. I took it to Goodyear and they said we can fix it....The bill was for $0.00 when I returned to claim the car. Seems as the screw did not penetrate all the way through the tire.
I am very happy that I did not buy a new tire as the dealer recommended.
I am very unhappy at the level of service from the dealer. This dealer is supposed to be one of the best. Now I am not so sure.
$490 a tire? I think not. I'm not sure which you have on your car but that is more than $100 more than a Goodyear Eagle EMT from Tire Rack. Sounds like someone is trying to rip you off a bit. I realize you can save some money through Tire Rack but it should be that much.
Good catch Rick. It was a typo!!! Sorry for the confusion guys.
The dealer quote was for four hundred ninety dollars for the new tire. I thought it was a little steep, especially since Goodyear determined that the screw had not penetrated the tire and the bill from them to look at it was $0.00.
Always keep the little tire pamphlet in your glove box. Some of the GY dealerships aren't aware of the pro-rated tire program with GM. (Just be happy you aren't looking at Z06 tires...) You better sit down when you price those babys!
