Yes, a leak is on the sidewall. I guess I have to replace all four since I got these Continental ContiTrac tires about 37K miles ago.
Any suggestions on the next tires? Good Year or Michelin? Looks like ContiTrac does not last much...
I replaced with Michelins, 1st time with Cross Terrains, this time with ATX M/S. Like them both, although the Cross Terrains only lasted about 45,000 miles. The OEM Conti's lasted less than 35,000. I've been buying my tires from America's Tire (affiliated with Discount Tire), prices are comparable to Tire Rack and Costco, and the ability to make an appointment in advance so you don't have to wait for hours for them to get to your car is a big plus for me. Plus, free flat repairs, rotation, re-balance for the life of the tires is a pretty nice benefit as well. Highly recommended, plus they are a sponsor for this forum.
