Today was a bit of an expensive day. One of the Toyo Nanosomething A29s caught a nail, and this is after already having one of the Toyo tires replaced due to a pull that allegedly the tire was causing.
Went to a local tire shop, who declined to patch and couldn't get the new tire until Monday at about $120 all in. I've hated these tires from the start, so I made the entirely rational (sarcasm) decision to throw the baby out with the bathwater and put on four tires I can tolerate rather than to buy another one of a tire I can't get in a pinch and can't stand anyway.
So, while I don't believe it's an LRR tire, I went with the tried and true Altimax RT43 from General at all four corners. So far, the tire is quieter in all respects and should have far superior wet performance than the tire that it replaced. I also pushed the gentleman a bit at Mavis Discount Tire, who took it down from $80 a tire down to $75 and fudged some other numbers as well. I was out for well, well under $500 and that's with their sorta-meh-but-why-not road hazard warranty. Unfortunately, the car does drive noticeably heavier than before, but that's also with less than 50 miles on the tires and A/C
cranking at a fairly significant duty cycle. Even though the compressor is all electric on this car and not belt driven, I have felt the drag even before the tire swap.
Overall however, MPG has continued to increase, even without charging, to well over 60 MPG calculated the old fashioned way (though the car's guess-o-meter is a little generous, about 3-4 MPG high. Which, on 60 MPG, truly is a smaller margin of error than most cars at 20 MPG.)
Total mileage is about 6400 or so. Only other defect I've noticed on the car is that I think the driver's door has a little buzz with the right bass hit, but most cars I've owned have suffered similarly.
