My wife brought in a tire that had a slow leak due to a small nail in the tread wall. The leak was slow where it only needed to be refilled every four days or so.
Took it to Tires Plus in Willow Grove, Pa. for a simple plug to repair. An hour later, after dropping tire off and leaving at the shop, she received a phone call stating that tire was irrepairable and required replacement. New tire, $320 installed.
When we declined, she brought the tire home and there was a new puncture hole in the sidewall. I filled the tire up and, the tire that took 4 days to empty of air, now took less than 15 minutes due to new punctured hole in the sidewall.
This new hole made the tire useless as it's no longer able to be plugged. Bottom line, the tire was punctured a second time in the sidewall at Tires Plus and an attempt was made to con my wife into buying a $320 tire instead of paying for a simple repair.
