If you are maintaining the speed limits, you can plug it until next payday. If you are a speed junkie....replace it. I have plugged a couple of my rear tires, maintained my speed to 80 and less, Thank , but I never had any problems.

I've had the same bad luck not too long ago. I replaced my tire cause it was losing air. I kept the tire, thinking I might need it for something because it had lots of tread left on it. I was looking at the nail and then noticed there was also a second nail in the tire. So, I just decided to dispose of the tire.
