Sentra 4-cyl

  • miles


On 10/04/07 I bought a lemans champion hr bl 195/690R15 88H tire from Firestone complete auto care buena park. On 11/1107 I notice the tire was flat I check the tire for any hole or tear's I could not find any. The pressure of the tire before I refilled it was 19 psi after wards it was at 31.8 psi. I check the tire pressure 10 day later on 11/21/07 it was at 25 psi. I took it back to the store to be replaced. I told them what was going on they ran some test and could not find anything wrong so they did not replace the tire. I believe there is a defect in this tire.

Sentra 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

Regarding the Bridgestone tires originally installed on my car - the car was purchased essentially new off of the lot in 2005 (300 miles). It has the original tires - Bridgestone P195/60/R15. It now has about 2000 miles on the car. The left front tire blew out while driving and had to be replaced. The tread area had apparently separated from the sidewall - a split about an inch long. There is almost 1/2" of tread on the tire, and they appeared fine until this apparent separation of tread and sidewall, but the tire could not be repaired and I had to buy a new one.
