Well just put a new Bridgestone on the rear. 625 miles on the tire and picked up a huge nail tonight. Man what a racket it made when I picked up the nail. Immediately pulled over and saw the problem. I was able to plug the tire and make it home. Now debating on whether to trust a plug, maybe patch the tire from the inside or just bite the bullet and put a new tire on. I know I would never fully trust the tire if it is patched. Just hate to throw away a tire with 625 miles on it.
