My shop offers a "Protection Plan" for 10% of the tire cost. So, I paid $25 per corner and have lifetime replacement/repair, and balance/rotate. I had one of mine in for a repair 1 month after install. A buddy of mine has had 2 SP8000's replaced after puncture wounds. It's worth it when you spend this kind of bucks on tires.

: : Anybody own these? Comments?

: Arguably the best you can get, but just be warned that "You have to pay if you wanna play." I had one (245/40) punctured by a nail after only two months and had to replace it at $300. The old Conti would have cost only $80. :(

: But don't get me wrong. By all means get them. The improvement is amazing over the stock Continentals for my car.
