problem #1

Feb 272003

Impreza 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 10,500 miles
Vehicle is a Subaru Impreza 2002 equipt with Bridgestone potenza RE92 16"tires. His week at approximately 10,500 miles 2 of these tires developed a pinhole leak in the center of the sidewall approximately a week apart. The leak was so tiny that it was hard to find. A call to a major Bridgestone distributor about this problem was not productive. They said they have no record of such a problem. I have never seen this in any previous tires that I have used. Can you shed any light on this subject?? thought it strange that 2 different tires of the same brand would have the same defect about a week apart. Thank you.
