Lemonade from lemons

Well as I was putting my newly painted belly pans back on I noticed my rear tire looked low. I whacked it with the wrench and got a thunk instead of a thank. Well its definately low. Look it over and see a small piece of metal dead in the middle. Great I got a nail. I get my plugging kit and my pliers out. I try pulling the small head out but it seems to be harder than the small size would lead me to think it should be. I dig around a little and finally get the hunk of metal out. It was not a nail but some hunk of metal about a 1/2" in size and it went in at an angle. No chance of plugging this 1000 mile tire . So I did the only thing I could. I ordered a front and rear Avon Distanza .

Well i got an email from http://www.americanmototire.com/catalog/ and the Distanza rear is on backorder 3-4 weeks. So I guess I'll just have to be happy with some Pirelli Scorpions
