So I got a nail in the right rear tire. Saw it coming out of a child's party, so I've been driving on it. It looked shallow enough so I figured I'd pull it. Once I heard the air hissing out, I prompltly inserted that bad boy back in. ;)

Went to Just Tires, and since they patch, they refused to repair since its close to the sidewall.

Its on the contact patch, I guess close enough to the corner. I've kept the nail in, matter of fact, hammered it in a bit, and looking to cut the nail in half to keep the nail in as plug. No air leaking, as far as I can tell.

So, replace the tire (car has 7k miles), replace the rear 2, or leave it alone?

Its the Goodyears LS2, stockers, and its got 7.5k miles on the other 3.

Anyone know if getting a new tire will get the balance off with the other 3 having 7.5 k? If I go that route, I think I'll get one new tire, rotate the rears (with the new tire) on the front.

Anyone for leaving it alone?
