    Default nail in tyre


    right i`m sure i`m not losing it but then i might be considering i`m the big 40
    in april but anyway i noticed a nail in me rear tyre the other day and it was
    on the edge of the tread,so anyway off i pop today to get it sorted and the
    fitter took the wheel off me car and was looking for the nail and cud he heck
    find it in the tyre so at that point i was so ashamed as i was thinking were
    the hell is it so i was really confuse that was i dreaming this or was it for
    real but then wot the hell so he re-fitted the wheel and off i pop back home
    and upto now its been ok so i cant understand wots gone on,maybee it cud
    of been just the head of a nail and its just got lodged in the tread then fell
    out at high speed lol so if so then thats saved me spending out for a new
    tyre.

    Did you actually touch this nail, I remember my mate picking up his brand new Audi A6 and when he dropped by my house there was something that looked just like a nail head, on further inspection is was just a small plastic circle.
