Found a nail stuck in my tire!

Well my TPMS lit up yesterday on the way home so I pulled out the compressor and tire pressure gauge when I got home. Low and behold after an inspection of the tire it seems I ran over a nail! Right now it appears to be a slow leak so I was going to get it patched. Any suggestions on a national chain where they do decent work? Or should I take it into the local Dodge dealer down the street?

I'd just plug it myself instead of patching it. The only time I'd get a patch is on a fast car with speed rated tires. Other than that, a plug works just fine for me and I can do it myself without having to break down the tire/wheel.

Look at it this way:

1. National Chain busineses (Discount Tires, NTB, Sears): They carry the bulk services and products for tires. That's what drives their business as well. Response time is assured in a timely manner. Some waits can go from 15mins to nearly 2-3 hours, depending on the number of customers in the queue. Flat repairs are often resolved fairly quickly and efficiently.

2. Dealerships: Generally, you have to schedule an appointment 'day' via their service department. Next, they collectively work you into the schedule, however, based generally on when you arrived/checked in, and the severity of the work. I'm sure (re)mounting/(re)balancing tires sits pretty low in the severity ladder. I wouldn't expect your vehicle to receive 'express' actions. Expect wait times to go from anywhere around 2 hrs to probably even the later half of the day. Imagine how long it'll take to come back to them and have them do a balance/rotation service, or even do a flat repair. I hope you have a novel/book/magazine w/ you at all times.

If you got a road hazzard warranty with the tires, they'll fix it for free. No guarantees on how long they'll make you wait, tho.

Just a thought.
