It can't be a very long nail, right? We shall see.
Our regular place took one look and said the tire needs to be replaced. I know that it can be plugged. The tires are about a year old and the nail is in the tread, not the wall.
I went with my gut and said no thanks. I took it to the next place and they said they are going to patch/plug it. So, yeah, $20 vs $235.
I really hate that I don't know when I am getting ripped off from the mechanic. This time, I followed my gut (I have had plug/patches done in the past, with no issues after) and I am going to resolve to read about my car more and get to know it.
Besides, if I'm going to replace tires, you best believe I'm gonna find the best deal possible!!:)
