2017 CRV Touring - Pearl White w Black Interior
That a 1/4" bolt? It's a long monster though. That should have been repairable unless it tore up the tire inside.
I actually had something very similar (exact same position in the tread in fact) with my left front tire about a month after I got my CRV. Also Hankook Kinergy tires. The bolt in my case was only 1 inch long though. America's tire evaluated it and said it could be repaired and they did exactly that. Been running on the repair now for almost 2 years without incident.
In your case, i can see from your tread markers you are about due for new ones anyway... so best to do what you did and replace.
The Scorpions look nice, but I don't know anything about them. I'll look them up and learn more about them, but most likely will go with Michelin Defenders when I need to replace. Michelins have always been outstanding on my Hondas.
