Nail In Tire Close To Sidewall
Since the nail is fairly close to the sidewall, would it be alright to patch it or is it not worth the risk? The dealership said they wouldn’t repair it since it’s near the sidewall and recommended just to replace that one tire. If I bring the tire to a smaller tire shop, I’m sure they would patch it but not sure if it would be safe.
If patching is a no go, according to the manual, it looks like I’ll have to replace a pair of tires so as to not damage the AWD system. The current all season tires have about 12-15K KMs on them so I’m guessing a new tire would have quite a bit more thread on them.
I’ve read about tire shaving but I don’t believe there are any places in Ottawa that does this... If anyone knows of a place please let me know.
