Sent my car for servicing today and was told that there was a nail in the front right tyre. The point of entry was too close to the side wall of the tyre so it is non-reparable. A new tyre costs US$150!!!
Can anyone explain how a nail can get into the tyre?
If the mail is dropped onto the ground it would most likely end up lying flat instead of standing on it's head with the sharp end pointing upwards.
So when a car runs over a nail that is lying flat, what makes it pierce the tyre so easily?
