If you have a nail or screw in your tire, I recommend you get it checked out asap. because a slow-leaking tire is not only a hassle, but it can also lead to bigger tire problems if you don’t get it fixed.
A quick plug-job at the local gas station may be tempting, but II recommend getting it done right! That’s because pugging a tire is a temporary tire repair and should only be done in an emergency.
A proper tire repair involves removing the tire from the wheel, inspecting the inside for damage, filling the hole, sealing the inner liner with a patch, and applying a sealer to the buffed inner liner
Also known as a 1-piece tire repair, this is the only kind of tire repair that is approved by tire manufacturers and the Tire Industry Association. Any other kind of tire repair will void your warranty and could compromise your safety.
