take it to a shop.....not sure if you have American Tire Co. by your house, they will do it for free.....they don't advertise it, but they will, I took my tires there twice before and they've done it for free for me, and I didn't even buy my tires from them....

Go to dealer....firestone used the wrong demounting machine (our wheels require special one with plastic parts) and scratched the crap out of it. After a long fight they are buying me new wheels.....

I stopped at Discount tire and they said that the don't plug tires but rather patch them from the inside. So I'm guessing they take the tire off the rim and patch it that way. Its ten bucks so I think I'll go with them. I hope they don't phuck up my rims though!

It is an easy DYI, but the correct way is to do it from the inside with a patch, and not just a plug, no? They can also check the balance after the put the patch on..

yes, you are right! they've removed 3 nails on 3 separate occasions for FREE! you don't even have to had bought the tires from them AND they don't have the machines that will scratch your wheels.

BTW, they'll match/beat all of Tirerack.com's prices on wheels and tires. :thumbup:

Sorry Dev but I just found out this morning that I am not officially a member. I went to discount tire and when they pulled out the nail I found out that it was only throught the tread and not the tire itself. They sprayed water on it and no bubbles came out so it didn't pierce the tire. I guess that proves I still have a good amount of tread left. So I am not an official member yet but now I know that I am not exempt from becoming one in the future.
