I’ve been driving a car for over 20 years of my life and for the first time in my driving life I had a nail in my tire.
I had my new car for a month and a couple weeks ago, the tire pressure sensor went off on one of the tires. So I filled it up with air, thinking maybe when they gave it to me, they were lazy about air in one tire. It happened again this morning.
So when I went to fill it up with air, I noticed the nail (see picture above).
Luckily, there is a tire place about 200 feet from my office, so I dropped it off there and they plugged it for $30.
Supposedly, nails in tires is not that uncommon – so I guess I had a 20 year luck streak.
