Regardless of what you hear or what advise you get, it is your butt, your bike, and your decision. What are you comfortable with? Some would wrap it in duct tape and ride on, some would patch or plug it and ride on, and some would toss it, put on a new one and ride on.im having a new tire put on today ,what do i do with the (brand new) old tire with a nail in the tread ?
you found my screw driver.....I want it back please!!!5Ross said:If your rear tire looks like this one, I would replace it.
This one only had about 3500 miles on it. I felt fortunate that I found it when I did. I was lucky. Would it have blown out? Who can say for sure?
I replaced it anyway and then I took a razor blade and completely ruined the sidewall so no one else would be able to take a chance with it.
