Apex may not, but I'm pretty sure Firestone would have included some valve stems

Check inside the boxes of the wheels too. Might be taped under one of the hard face covers.

Well Quimby takes you right up to 130/Mt Ham rd which you take all the way east to Mines rd towards Livermore. I used to visit family by ranging waters on the weekends and during down time, I would make a little loop up Quimby-130-Clayton.

Plug it? That's what I did with the General Tires I have on the Yaris a few weeks back. Took me 20 minutes to do it after I was able to get the car into the garage.

Don't use the diy puncture fixes. Take it to a tire shop and get it patched.

Not leaking but definitely looks deep, it looks like a small metal clip. It's about the size of an pen insert or a body of a q-tip. Just it's only been 800ish miles.

Santa Rosa Subaru acknowledged the oil sippage tsb when I brought it in and it will be covered under warranty so now waiting for parts and call. Advisor from the Tech said it's coming from the timing cover and working its way to the rear of the engine when driving? That made me think but I'll just wait for the call to go back to drop off the car so I can talk to the tech himself and show pictures.
