Hi,

I do not check my tyres as often as I should.

I was fortunate to spot this little bugger before it penetrated through to cause a puncture >

That was my concern too. I thought about it overnight before I pulled it out.

I was not far from a garage. I have a battery air compressor and figured I could keep the tyre inflated until I got there.

I poured soapy water over the area and checked for bubbles. I will keep an eye on the pressure and my fingers crossed.

Luckily the nail was in the thickest part of the tread Posted Image
