Recently just got this nail in my tire. Was told by my local firestone that it’s too close to the sidewall. I just got the tire so I’m not looking to throw away a perfectly good tire on a technicality. Let me know what you think!

For your safety and others just replace the tire...
IMHO it is outside the safe repair area but, as you have been told by your local firestone the same thing you can go to another dealer for another opinion.
A patch wall repair along with the inclined nozzle for cauterizing would cost you $40. A brand new tire from the dealer $117 to $130 from a genuine dealer. So the debate is $60 to $80 difference.
