what's up guys
i got the bridgestone potenzas, 18's, and my rear right tire shredded so bad today. the check tire light came on, i went to discount tire because it was right down the street. the guy checked the tired and put air in and went my way. the check tire light went off. i went back to work, and after work, my tire just went straight flat. i put the spare on, and i just looked at the bridgestone tire, the entire thing on the insidewall, it's totally shredded. after only 6k miled. now, a new tire is around 250 or so, please correct me if i'm wrong. this should not be happening to a brand new tire. is it still under warrenty? what can i do? i really don't wanna spend all this money, and all honestly, i think that bridgestone should replace it for free. any thoughts? ideas??? any feedback is greatly appreciated.

well, after only 6k miles/3 months of owning the car, the check tire light went on, i pulled over and the tire on the rear right side was flat.i changed it, got my spare on and went on. there was no puncture or anything on the car. the entire tire was shredded, i gotta put up a pic. i called bridgestone, and they sent me to ted wiens, which is a small distributor was bridgestone in vegas, and they said that i drove the car flat, i was like, no, i pulled over ********, and he was like, yep, that's why, so it wouldn't be covered under warrenty. and then i left, and spoke with my coworker, he said i might have a better chance with the dealership, they would be more leniant towards taking a loss compared to the tire distributor. also, i have a crack on my windshield, any warrenty on that? any thoughts? any help is greatly appreciated guys.
