I would have plugged it, filled it with air and continued on my way, Ride on tends to coat the center of the tire. Where that nail is located I think it could have been plugged. JMHO As the saying goes, "Take a chance-Columbus did!"

Hi Wes, Take a closer look at the picture of the tire. The nail sticks out the side wall as well.

If it was only in the tread, yea, I would probably plug it too. Hate to toss a brand new tire.

Best always

I didn't't see that! Damn that really sucks! The tire has a lot of tread what a shame. A plug definitely wouldn't work on that tire.

Regards,
Wes
