Didn't know this was why I literally have gone through 3-4 random flat tires (always fronts...I wanna say the passenger side..?) within two years of buying it (bought it in 2008 with 27k miles; now has 119k) and I'm always meticulous about getting tires changed out as needed. I figured I was driving it a lil too aggressively ;) makes sense now but not sure what kind of "investment" this would entail to fix :/
