Did I need to replace all four tires?
I have an 08 FSXT, 19500 miles with the original Geos. Yesterday my tire pressure light came on. Turns out my right rear was ~8 low, so I topped it off. This morning it was ~10 low, so I knew I had a problem. I took it up to the Discount Tire by the house. They found a huge screw stuck high in the sidewall, and said that it could not be fixed at that spot. They then went on to tell me that because of the AWD system, that I need to replace all four tires together. They didn't have the Geos, so I ended up going with the YK 520s for $563 OTD.
Now my question is: did I need to replace all four tires, or was that total BS? The YK 520s seem to have received good reviews overall, so at least I feel good about that.
