    No, this is not another knob thread. I noticed a nail in my left rear tire. So I went to Tire Kingdom where they told me it would be a 2 hour wait. I left there and went to Tires Plus. They said both their balance machines were down until tomorrow. So I went to Pep Boys. There they put my car in the air and then pulled the nail out. It turned out to be a special nail with a big head and only about 1/4" long. So it didn't go through the tread. I'd thought it was a roofing nail.

    some times you win, I lost my last tire battle to a nail. good thing it was in the SRT-8 that I traded. I had the tire removed and patched from the inside. BEFORE trade day, but at least I did not have to purchase a tire

    It's the little things in life that make us smile. That would have made my whole day. I get anxiety every time a tire guy has to remove my $1200 wheel

    or worse had to remove the tire around your $1,200 wheel and put it back on then balance it. Don't want to see that

    Or worse than that.. have him remove tire from one 1200 wheel, only to install it back on another 1200 wheel that has been Black Chrome PVD plated.. then balance it.. pucker time!
