Potenza SO-3 repair question..

I just noticed I have a screw in my right rear on my M3. It is a 275/30/19. Can I have them plug it until my new PS2's arrive in a few days? I've had tires plugged before but they were not high performance tires. Will that work for a few days until the tires come in?

should be fine. They say plugs bring speed rating to about 110Mph max, so if you can live with that for a couple of days, go for it.
Or you could just wait for new tires all together. I prefer not to let anybody mess around with my rims w/o real need for it. It's better than her them say, "I'm sorry man, did not mean to put that scratch on ... "

^^^I'm with him, plug it and just be careful. Goodyear and Pirelli used to make us buff off the speed rating when we plugged a tire... Then they found out it was illegal to remove the sped rating!
