I called the tire place I got them from and they said no. I can either have them try to plug it or get a whole new tire $210.

A lot of wear usually occurs at exactly that spot, I'd say get a new tire and shave it so its even with the rest. Good luck

Damn man, that really sucks especially since you just got the damn things. That's usually why I always get the warranty :-\

If its in the outer tread bar its not repairable because that part of the tire flexes a lot and the patch out just come off after a while

I would try getting it patched. I don't use plugs. If the tire can seal itself, you could save some money.

There's no way a shop would try patching something like that. As Travis said earlier, there is a big chance of it not sealing properly and it could potentially cause a blow out. A shop many tray to plug it but most shops will just recommend a new tire.
