Tire plugging in the GTA

Hi I have a tire that appears to have a screw in the tread, however the tire is not leaking air yet. the garage at the end of my street is completely booked solid - does anyone have any recos on where else i can go to get it repaired? The tires were bought a costco originally about 3-4 years ago.

Thanks!

any shop can do this. Just drive around in your neighborhood. Active Green Ross has so many locations that you can probably just pop in when they open first thing in the morning.

Get a DIY kit from Canadian Tire. It's pretty easy to do and safe as long as the screw isn't in the side of the tire.
If you're not up for it, I'm sure you can find someone on Kijiji to do it for about $20.

If you bought the tires from Costco, they do free repairs. Also free road hazard insurance if the tire can't be repaired.
Just make an appointment

If the tire isn't leaking, the screw might not have gone through the tire. I've pulled out many screws over the years that haven't gone through.

Just apply some dish soap the area around the screw, if you see bubbles, its leaking. If you see no bubbles, use some needle nose pliers and pull that screw out. Note, it maybe take a few seconds to see bubbles if the leak is slow.

this.

Leave it alone until the appointment and check your pressure regularly until then
