I recently got a flat due to a nail of some sort. The place I took it to won't patch because "the patches are round and the hole is too close to the edge".
So now because I drive an awd vehicle (2018 highlander with 19s), I'll need to change all 4 tires (Bridgestone duellers) with 18k miles on them.
Part of me just wonders if they would rather just sell $1k worth of tires than fix one... so, would any place patch this? Maybe there are better types of patches for something like this? Any alternatives?
