After the auto-x today I had a tire failure on a brand new set of tires. The sidewall split. Sending a huge thank you to several of our VMSC members that stayed and helped with jacks, tools etc. Especially Marc Portanova. He loaned me the front wheel/tire off his GT3. Now that's a real friend. I got home safely. Thank you all. Now, that call to Tire Rack and hope they will step up.

Glad to hear you made it back safely Bobby. Anytime you need anything I always have a full load packed in the truck never know what can happen.

Glad you made it home. Hope you can sort it out with Tirerack.

That sucks, it's kind of ironic that we were just talking about Tireracks return policy while working the course yesterday.

BTW Tirerack's road hazard dept. covered a brand new tire and shipping. I had to submit photos and documentation and within a week I had a check. Gotta love Tirerack. Very customer friendly.
PS also purchased a space saver spare for the Boxster (did not come with one from Porsche)

Glad that you made it home ok.  I figured that Marc's 'spare' would get you there. 

Also glad that the TireRack warranty thing worked well.  Good to know.
