Side wall generally means new tire.

Tread looks low on the tire anyways. Be safe get a new set

Just plug the tire and you should be good to go.
If you are worried, run that tire on the back of the car.

safety wise it is not repairable.... if you want to chance your nice rims, you can try to plug it but it might let go.....

Some tire shops simply won't look at tires with a damaged sidewall. Time for a new one. Consider yourself lucky if your car isnt AWD.

Will you be tracking or autoXing these tires?
If no, then this tire is fine. Just plug it and go.

Co-worker had ther same type puncture on his 2010 Corolla. I plugged it for him and 6 months later, it is still holding air.

Not at all, just daily driving.

I guess I'll have to find a place to do it though, I have a feeling some places will turn me away haha.

Try to use one of these if possible:



If I was still working at a tire shop, I wouldn't repair it for liability reasons. If it were my personal car, might consider it.

Years ago, on my old Supra i had a nail in the tire same spot as your's. Stuck a plug in it and it was fine. Drove on it for about a year before i bought 4 new tires. If you use a plug, make sure you use one that needs vulcanizing cement vulcanize to the tire.

But like fliptuner says, at work we would not fix that for liability reasons

I wouldn't plug it and the above posters are correct it is unsafe and any of the big name tire shops will not even look at it (Kal tire, CT, etc.)...but with that being said I had a piece of sharp rebar go right through the corner of my tire....

the big shops turned me away (new tire was $300 )
found a smaller shop that patched it from the inside and it has held up great so far, have made several highway trips without issues...
the shops in Surrey though but only charges $25 and can do it on the spot...also my uncle got his tire patched from the same shop and its held up fine for over a year, his damage was on the corner as well, and he takes his truck over all sorts of uneven surfaces

pm if your interested

edit* heres a pic of the damage, the puncture was right on the corner of my tire
