Photo: Nail in the Tire

Not long ago I thought I had all my tires in check, but Daisy said my tire was flat and..yep it was pretty much done. Turned out I ran over a nail though I'm not sure where but it makes you really hate contractors who have stuff like that fall out of their trucks. I called AAA and the guy put the spare tire on instead of towing it. I drove to Firestone and got a new tire to replace it.

  2. I can relate to your problem, except mine much worse. I cannot judge distance when in car, ran over a curb and messed up front end and tires. I had to have front in fixed plus four new tires. I deal only with Discount Tires in Texas. They are the best to help you.

  4. I hate when that happens! Stupid nails in places where they shouldn't be...or people that leave them there are the worst!

  5. That totally sucks. We've had it happen on a brand new tire. Twice. It is very upsetting.

  6. very annoying. depending where the nail is sometimes they can plug it, but if it's near the rim you have to get a new tire.

  8. We just had a nail in Cindy's tire, twenty bucks to fix a flat.

    Looks like a new tire for you solved the problem, too bad we can't see those nails in the road.

  9. So sorry...I know new tires aren't cheap...Mr. Sweet had ours checked and rotated not long before he got sick.

  10. Didn't have a nail in our tire, but got a bum tire from Costco last year. Had to keep taking it back to get fixed and they acted like we were trying to scam them or something. Finally found one competent automotive worker who admitted the tire was bad and finally made right on it. Makes me think twice about using Costco's automotive services again.

  11. YIKES! Glad you were able to get it fixed so quickly. I feel the same way, adam. How or why do nails end up in the street to cause people so much money and inconvenience with flat tires? It's the pits for sure.
