Tire replacement on a Sunday

Last night I had the good fortune of running over a Golds Gym weight belt on the freeway ( couldn't make this stuff up ) and the metal belt part punctured my tire. With that said, I need to replace the rear ASAP and given dealer service is closed on Sunday I need to find a place that sells PS2's. Anyone have a shop in mind in the LA area?

Looking like Monday might be my best bet. I think I am just going to have it sent to the dealer and have them take care of it.

are you going to flatbed your car for a tire? do you have a jack and another vehicle or friend?

No jack here unfortunately and finding a 265 Ps2 on Sunday is proving to be quite difficult

Don't go to Americas Tires, if you have 19inch wheels, they'll scratch it up big time. Best bet is to remove the wheel and only bring in the wheel and the new tire.

^I've had good luck with america's tire and with 19s in the past. I'll admit though, if I had HREs or something of the sort, I'd go to a specialty shop.

For the OP, glad you found a tire through the forums. There are a few shops open on sunday, but regardless they would still need to order a tire, so you might have been looking at tuesday morning if you went through a shop.
