Never Been So Frustrated!!!

Well it all Started Yesterday around Noon or so i Notice theres a Nail in My Back Tire! Well it Bothered me a Little Bit only Because it was a Fairly New Pilot well since about December, it had plenty of thread But i Went ahead and wanted it Replaced with a New one and i was Looking at My Front tire (the Dunlop that came with the Bike) and it was pretty cracked so went ahead and replaced it with a Pilot! Great i was Happy 2 new Shoes for the Bike Right... Well today i Go outside and wash it and get to cleaning my Rims when i Notice on My Back Tire there was some kind of Gashes or Slices Maybe from Box Cutters or something i have no idea but that made me to inspect the Whole Tire and comes to find out i Had a Freaking Nail in this One i knew it was gonna leak if i pulled it out but i went ahead and did so! Well now im Gonna have to Load it up and take it back Replace it Again! but im going to save this tire now and maybe see if it can be Patched or something im not too sure... any suggestion?

PS. I do plan on going to HRP tonight so i need to get this out of the way

You should get your tires from cycle gear. They offer road hazard warranty.
