I have been extremely unlucky with my latest set of tires. I barely got these tires a few months ago and have had a few mishaps already.
First, I got a nail straight through the middle of the sidewall of my Hankook Ventus V12 275/35/19 after about 2 months of the initial purchase. Bought a new tire since it destroyed the sidewall.
Now, I recently noticed 2 nails on my front passenger tire
One of them seems to be far enough to patch, whereas the other is just above the sidewall. Based on most recommendations, you need to be a certain distance from the sidewall to be able to patch or plug.
Pictures, shown at the end of this post, shows 2 nails within a very close range to the sidewall. I don't seem to be losing any pressure after a little over a day since I noticed it.
Though I'm pretty sure what the answer is, is there anything
I can safely do about this without having to buy another tire? It's just extremely frustrating to have to throw away a second tire that is virtually brand new.
