Tire repair

Four wheeling this weekend and got a nail in my new tires. How big a hole can be fixed. OK it was more than a nail it was a railroad spike!

If its on the sidewall, ur pretty much screwed (no pun intended) unless u have road hazard warranty.
It's fixable if its on the treads.

I was "crabbing" in some rocks and punctured the sidewall my last wheeling trip. I didn't purchase road hazard but I talked to the manufacturer and they have me 50% off tire,mounting,balancing, and tax!

Luckily it's right in the middle of the treads, but it's a huge railroad spike. The size of the hole is what has me concerned.

Ur good. A tire shop can patch it inside/outside for a small fee.
