Default Tire Question

I just pulled a screw out of my tire. It was a very short, sharp,
self-tapping sheetmetal kind of screw, about 1/2" length on the
threaded portion. It was in the center of the tread part of the tire,
in between the treads, and I pulled it out to put a plug in the hole
and then I realized that the air wasn't leaking out of the hole. Fom
examining the screw I can see that it had been stuck into the tire
about 9/32s of an inch (just a hair more than 1/4").

Just how thick is that part of an average tire? Should I worry about
this? It seems to me that the point of the screw must have been
almost poking through but not quite.

I guess I can just poke the hole through and put in a plug as was my
original intention when I thought the tire would go flat. But somehow
that seems like damaging a tire that may be OK the way it is.

Any thoughts?
