    Hey all. I just got my CTR two weeks ago, and I already have two nails in them somehow. I planned on upgrading/downsizing to 18” wheels/tires once the Conti’s ran their life, but I think I’m just going to swap out all four tires and keep the OEM wheels for another year or so.

    What’s the best bang-for-your buck tires that will last a decent amount of miles? This is for daily driving in SoCal (don’t plan to track it until I get a proper setup). Also, do these tires look patchable? Dealer said they weren’t. Does anyone know if these fall under a roadside hazard warranty or anything?

    Probably patchable in my opinion.

    If you want a good bang for your buck performance tire, checkout the Firestone Firehawk Indy 500.

    Thank you. Any idea how the Indy's stack up against the Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2's?

    I'm looking for the most practical daily, that has the most treadlife.

    Sorry to hear. Hopefully they’re patchable, but if not..it’s an excuse to get new tires ‍:dunno:

    Haha thanks, it worked out surprisingly well! Patched at a local shop while I waited, done by an adorable female tech who was star-struck by my car :love:

    This rockstar treatment only cost $19, so I'm chalking this one up as a net win.

    Are you guys driving pass construction zones? I sometimes get nails in the tires driving by construction areas and the Home Depot. I always check my tires after driving pass those places.

    IMO, if you're looking to daily drive, you'll be very happy with the Indy 500 tires. They are not going to grip as hard as the Cup 2s though.

    Take your car to somewhere other than the dealer and get those otherwise brand new tires patched. There is no reason why they can't patch those...they just want to sell you tires

    How did it go with the tire mounting situation. Just came off another thread where they recommend honda techs to use certain high end machines to avoid messing up the Type r wheels. Where'd you go to?

    900 miles on mine. Picked up a big staple. Was losing 2 pounds of air a day until I was able to get it to the dealership. I bought the 5 year ultimate tire warranty since the finance guy said a CTR single rim costs $1300 new. Had this patched for free. I have a feeling that tire warranty will come in handy. Also covers paintless dent repair if I get a door ding.

    Your top pic looks like they can patch it. The bottom pic looks too close to the edge of the tire. I doubt the dealership will patch it. Small tire shop probably will though.

    Posting here again FYI:

    Call Hunter Engineering at (800) 448-6848 to find the location of your nearest shop that has a Hunter Revolution Full Auto tire changer. I believe there is another Hunter model that will also work on Type R wheels without damaging them.
