Ugh! I just hate when this happens to an expensive tire.

Don’t you just hate picking up a nail or screw in a halfway decent tire? The BMW X5 35d has expensive run-flat tires and although I don’t panic about being able to drive the car home with a slow leak, I dread deciding on replace just "one" tire … so hear is hoping I can plug successfully this afternoon.

I’ve been hoping to drive the next 5000-10,000 miles on the existing tires and planning to replace in the fall of 2017. They should make it until then tread-wise, but it all depends on avoiding any road debris or unrepairable failures. Hopefully I’ll be able to pull myself away from the Daytona 500 this afternoon and plug the tire.
