That kind of spike in the road kinda makes you want to use it for medicinal purpose on the poop head who put it there. Like as a suppository.

I saw a segment on Autoweek about the choices in tire patches that available today. Ask the shop if they have kevlar reinforced patches. I'm guessing those are only available at the better tire places.

Nah, but it was bizarre. The head of the nail is what punctured the tire and the point was sticking out. It was a bear to pull the head back through the rubber to get it out.
