That's an amazing price that I'm not finding anything even remotely close to anything like that! The best pricing I've found on the marathons was about $162 but $75 for shipping 5 of them and then I'd still have to pay to have them mounted and balanced.
The Maxxis I found were $165 with free shipping and then I'd have to pay locally for mounting and balancing.
As for the inside of the tire- I had one occasion on the first day of ownership pulling into a gas station that had those triangle "only turn in from the right and only exit to the right" thingers (Sheetz in PA). But that was back in July 2012. Since then- the only other thing I've hit are potholes. My wife struck a curb just before Christmas- but again, outside and not inside.
I'm not sure if 1 tire is worth pursuing a warranty claim (I've been diligent about tire pressures since day 1) when I'd really prefer just to replace them with quality tires.
