    :pissed: Okay! Everytime it involves a car, i always have the worst of all luck. So i wake up saturday morning to go clean out my car and get it washed. While i was cleanin the rims, i notice a nice nail in my tire wich is litteraly right in the tire POS to make it worse the tires only have 6k on em ... cripes.
    What to do, i figure the garage can fix the tire once the nail gets removed?

    Plug or patch. If they charge you anymore then $20, you're taking it in the pooper.

    most tires have road hazard on them

    take them back and get a new tire for a few bucks

    Pending on where there nail went through, like angell said road hazzard may cover you. Of course it's pro-rated so pending on how much tread you already have worn (You say 6K, which isn't much) you'll have to pay very little for a new tire.

    depends where the nail is. if its too close to the sidewall they won't fix it. wal-mart charges 17 bucks for a tire repair

    If you get it patched make sure it's a Volcunized patch!! way better than any others!

    The nail is close to the outside, i'd say about 7 cm from the edge.
    there isnt much wear on my tire, at least i dont think so. i'll snap a pic of it when i get home.

    shouldnt be a problem. its only if its near the edge of the tread that it could become a problem
