So I pull out my car to give it a wash on this beautiful 72 degree day, probly the last warm day here in chicago until after winter, only to find a low pressure warning from my consule. The tire pressure read zero, surely this must be a mistake.... I pull it in to the driveway get out only to what turned out to be a key in my tire. :angry: it was so far into the tire that I had a hard time spotting it. So now the dealer has to order me a tire in the morning to the tune of 440 but they will match the 419 price given to me by ntb... hopefully they will get it in before sat as I was planning on hitting the track for the first time.

I'm moving this to 5th gen general discussion...this really has nothing to do specifically with the v8 engine.

That totally sucks though man...I'd be pissed.

A plugged tire works fine as long as it's done correctly
Beats 419 out of pocket

I think there is a good chance that it could be but is it a good idea with this kind of tire?
I'm not sure it would be any different that any other tire.

You could pick up a patch kit from any auto parts store for very cheap that have the tools you'll need.

Yep had a flat while going down the freeway on Monday. The TPS sensor said 20 lbs and within a mile it was at 12. Hit Onstar and had them gt me a tow truck toe pick me up. Had to wait till today to get the tire in. Lucky I have the road hazard offered by Classic here in Grapevine. Also alot of places will not patch/plug a z rated tire.

take it to Discount Tire Co. they fix flats for free if you ever bought tires from them before. they might even fix it for free b/c its a new camaro! at most it will cost you $25 to have a tire shop properly plug and patch it for you.

i used to work at a tire shop... as long as they plug/patch it from the inside out and the hole isn't within 1/4" from the sidewall any type of tire can be repaired.
