With that big hole its got to be a BOLT or a big (thick) nail, but in either case it should have stayed embedded in the tyre and should not have come out.

Is the Yoko's compound so soft that a small stone can do this to the tyre, asking as such a hole and missing BOLT/Nail can only be because a sharp stone created that damage?

My Michelin and Bridgestone are working wonderfully so far.

Just now Yokohama Team visited and told us that it cannot be replaced , dealer is doing repair work.Tomorrow getting inspection report.Really dis pointed with Yokohama.
Because of unavailability of Michelin(195/60/R15) I decided to go with Yoko (as per dealer suggestion)
I feel that taken wrong decision.
