When our tire went, we where away from home and had a mobile tech come do it... I watched if that counts
But if it's a Goodyear tire, save the tire carcass and take pics to send to Goodyear @ firstname.lastname@example.org
and we were fully reimbursed !
Might try it with other tire mfg's too !!! won't hurt...
but, if you wonder about repair, the tech just brought a panel that match our color (white at the time) used snips to cut the pattern to match the old,
opened up the joint seam and bent the top of the new panel to match (in a J-hook sort of),
and put the trim back all around to hide the cuts...
be VERY careful, that stuff bends easily when not supported and will cut the HECK out of your skin
