screw in tire!!

I used to work for Wal-Mart in the TLE department and I fixed many, many tires while employed there. I saw everything from nails, screws, rocks, bone fragments (avoid running over animals that have already been ran over) and even a paper clip. The best though was a guy came in and needed a new tire. The woman working the counter wrote up the order as a flat repair because it was one of our tires and we would pro-rate it out. When I took the tire off the rim there was a steel bar inside measuring roughly 18 inches long, 2 inches wide and nearly 1/4 thick. That my friend will destroy a tire! (the rim had some scratches but it was ok)

I always carry a plug kit and a small compressor in my truck! More than a few times I have fixed a tire right there on the spot.
