Is It Safe to Drive with a Nail Stuck in a Tire?

If there’s a nail in your tire, it can be safe to go a short distance, but you certainly won’t want to drive to work or go on vacation with that nail stuck in the tire. The first thing you should do if you see a nail is contact our service center.

If the nail is in deep, you may not notice much air leaking out of the tire. That’s actually a good thing. The best thing to do in this case is to not touch the nail, or the air may leak out faster. Drive to our service center as soon as possible, and we’ll inspect the tire to see if it can be saved.

There are many cases where plugging and patching the tire can be a good solution. If the tire can be plugged and patched, we’ll do that, avoiding the cost of a new tire.

Have Your Spare at the Ready

It’s possible that your tire may be losing air quickly. You may not be able to make it to the service center for repairs, so have your spare tire at the ready. If you’re able to change your existing tire and put the spare on yourself, be sure to save your old tire, regardless of the shape it’s in. It’s possible that the tire could be repaired, and then you can store your spare away once again.

Staying up to date with all tire maintenance is always the best thing you can do for your tires. Be sure to schedule a tire rotation in accordance with your owner’s manual, and we’ll be sure to complete it and get you back on the road.
