screwed again

1094 Views 7 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  Gas Man
after riding back from work today, i found a screw in the rear tire.
from what i've read, when running over a screw, the front tire will kick it up perfectly aligned to pierce the rear tire perpendicularly.

I sprayed it with soapy water and it showed a small leak.
I uploaded images of the leak and the tire plug i used to fix it.

it was a one inch drywall screw.

How's it holding up?
I've used a sticky tire patch like that before and never had a problem. Just keep an eye on it.:2cents: :luck:
