Tire blow-out
Found a nail sticking out of one of the tire yesterday, took it to a tire shop they would not plug the hole, said that it was too far near the sidewall. It is right near the edge of the thread.
What will happen if they plug the leak? Why wouldn't they fix the flat?

yea, if the puncture is on the sidewall or near it they can't plug it. i don't know the technical reason why but that is the case. sucks don't it? :sad:

My best guess is that the area near or around the sidewall do not have enough "treads" or layers to prevent it from blowing.

Again, this is only a guess. You best ask Eddie @ tirerack.
