Default Off to the tire shop

My buddy just noticed I have what appears to be a screw in one of my new tires.
its on the meaty part of the tread so it may have not gone all the way through.

I figured I would be better off driving it to the shop and then pull it.
that way I dont have to drive around with a donut on :P

The woman you hit found your car and did it on purpose.

Not to threadjack, buy I just had the same problem the other day. My "screw" made thump thump thump noise as I was driving. And my tires are only a few months old.

Fortunately the shop fixed it. I hope it stays fixed too.

Ha Ha very funny guys . Im good. got to the shop,pulled up to the rear door where a guy was on a smoke break. I pulled it out with him as a witness. turns out it was only about
a 3/8 of an inch screw. sprayed some simple green on it to see if there was any bubbling.

Im good to go


now what do I do with the rest of this beautiful day off

Take pics before the white curse strikes again and takes out more of the car.
