Nail In Tire

I recently noticed a nail or some piece of metal in my tire when I put tire shine on yesterday. I am not losing pressure and I think I've had it for some time now because when I go on drives longer than 20 miles my tpms says it has a fault but the pressure is fine. I think this had something to do with it. My question to you guys is do you think the tire shops will repair it? I hope so but I think I'm on that fine line. What do you guys think?

That should be repairable. Usually they won't repair it only if it's on the sidewall.

A lot of shops will not repair anything in the shoulder either, due to the level of displacement seen in that region of the tire.
I have patched tires in that region, however, I would not recommend using it at high speed or on a track with a patch in that location.

I've had a shop refuse to repair one in that location and then when another tire picked up a nail in the same spot, the same shop repaired it. Only difference was the guy behind the counter that day.

Normally in the first 1 inch is not repairable because of tire flex, and that is close to that if not in that range.

Buy a plug and keep going. Watch the tire, but it should be fine.

If I take it to a shop and they say it's unsafe for driving will they force me to buy a tire/throw my spare on? I'm hoping they will just patch it. I'm getting ready to put it away for winter so buying a new tire right now seems silly.

A shop cannot force you to buy anything unless you give them pre-approval. They can refuse to repair it if they want, though, because of fear of liability.

Well my first try didn't work. Tried Big O tire and they said they couldn't. I will try another place tomorrow.

After 3 places turning me away I forfeit. They kept saying if it was a normal tire they would do it but they don't want to that close to the sidewall with low profile summer tires. I've only wore off 2/32 on the two fronts so I'm just going to bite the bullet and buy one and replace it.

If that many places told you the same thing, it's probably the best call. They are in business to make money so I expect they will when possible.

Just had my car to a shop with a nail further in toward the center of the tire than that (at the inside edge of the tread block) and they refused to repair it. I will plug it myself tomorrow.

Only reason I brought it in is I am recovering from a broken collar bone and didn't want to deal with it.

Had a nail in about the same relative location.
First place I went to said too close to the edge, tire must be replaced.
Second place said they could fix it but must break down tire and put a patch on the inside. About $50 I believe.
Third place, all they do is tires, looked at it on the car, plugged it and $10 later I was on my way.
That was about 1-1/2 years ago. Never leaked.
