I have a 2011 Ford Focus, and while the car itself is good quality, I have now ruined two tires in three months by merely driving over a screw.
Ford offers no road hazard on their tires, so I am pretty annoyed with Ford.
Both Costco and Discount Tires advise me I should either replace all 4 tires, or at least replace 2 tires. They also tell me that the replacement tires should be of the same speed rating.
- I can go to Ford and get ONE other tissue thin breaks on sight good for two month Hankook Optimo no road hazard OEM tire for $135.
- I can go to Discount and get TWO Yokohamas with road hazard for $100 a piece magically costing $280 total by the time they are installed.
- And both Discount and Costco will sell me 4 tires with road hazard for about $550.
Discount will sell me ONE Yokohama Avid (touring s I think), but they advise against it. The Ford service rep offers no advice.
I am very tempted to get the one Yokohama, because of the road hazard, and I am trying to determine what the impact of having one different tire amongst three really is.
