Well got home on friday. parked outside, heard a hissing noise, but the neighbors ac unit was running and making its normal racket so i did not think much about it.
came back an hour later to go pick up my kid, flat. so I hop in wifes car, go get kid and stop at parts store and pick up the rubber goey string tire fix kit.
find the hole was unable to pull out the offending object. so I push it in and install the rubber strings. problem solved. but I'm planning a trip from DC to Canada so I get a proper plug patch and have the guys at work dismount the tire to make the repair.
this is what came out of the tire. Just how the F$#@ does that get into the tire.
4/32 left on the tires 55K miles
so going to do a plug patch to get me through the next couple days... argh. wasn't planning on funding for new tires this year.
the plug patch goes in with almost no resistance. so needless to say I don't have much confidence in the repair going to canada...
