Default Plugging a tire

I have a screw in my tire. I have been told that the tire cannot be
repaired because the hole is so close to the sidewall. It's about 3/4
of an inch from the side, right after the first row of thread. I would
appreciate your opinion / advice.

Cheers!

Why would you take a chance?

Can you not afford a new tire?

I paid $175 for this tire, and I barely have 5000km on it. It would be
a shame to throw it out.

Go ahead then. Get it plugged. Drive fast and hard on it.

It beats the crap out of me why anyone would ask a question like this.

Don't you *want* to be confident that your tires are going to maintain
their integrity while you're speeding along and maybe hitting the
inevitable little pothole or two?

Sheesh. Get over it. Buy a new tire.

I think he's trying to tell you that your life and that of your family
should be worth more than $175. You CAN'T trust the plugged tire!!

It seems to me that if the puncture is within the TREAD(3/4" in from edge
of tread seems OK to me) that the tire is patchable.

Find another shop.

I'm no expert on this, but I also suspect that 3/4 inch into the tread is
patchable. A second opinion makes sense. If they agree, then it's time to
bite the bullet.

Thanks for the advice. My regular shop should be opened today. I will
go see them.

That should be repairable. If the sidewall is damaged, they usually don't
try to fix them, but punctures in the tread are usually OK to repair. How
much tread does it have remaining?
