I had to get a car tire replaced today, because it was punctured by a rock. Not a particularly sharp rock either, just your average, everyday rock. It went straight through a rain groove.
I bought the car two days ago--it doesn't even have 400 miles on it. I am either astronomically unlucky (which might be possible, I'll grant) or there is something not right about that tire.
I didn't have the shop dispose of the tire yet, because I want to know if there's some way I can get it tested to see if the tire is defective somehow. Can I send it someplace? What sort of defects could the tire have had?
