    New Rear Tire Due to Puncture

    All-

    I have three nails, including one in the sidewall that ruined the 19" left rear tire. I will replace it, but my question is this. I have 3500 miles of fairly conservative driving on the car. Is it a bad thing to replace only the damaged left rear and leave the old right rear on? Am I asking for trouble?

    Re: New Rear Tire Due to Puncture

    Sorry to hear about your puncture.

    On my 987S, I had a puncture as well and had only the affected 19" rear tire replaced at my OPC. Car had around 5000 miles at that time. When I asked the Porsche service department they said a single tire replacement is fine as long as the thread is still good.

    Re: New Rear Tire Due to Puncture

    My guess is you'd be fine with a 3500 mile tire next to a new one, unless you're tracking the car or on the Autobahn, I can't ever remember anyone worried about the issue you raise when dealing with flats on a "normal" car.

    Re: New Rear Tire Due to Puncture

    How did you get 3 nails in one tire? Someone has it in against you or your car?

    Re: New Rear Tire Due to Puncture

    i have had a similar experience, one with only 300 miles on the tire. i have had tires patched and plugged and others because of the location of the puncture near the sidewall, replaced.

    Re: New Rear Tire Due to Puncture

    Is it appropriate to patch a high performance tire like the ones on the 997s, assuming the nail is not in the sidewall?

    Re: New Rear Tire Due to Puncture

    I thought the 911 don't get flat tires, since it has no spare.

    DNP-

    I live in an area with a lot of new home construction.

    Texas-

    The tire didn't go flat, I just noticed one of the nails in the rear tread. It was still driveable.
