Whats the longest nail you've pulled from a tire?

Pulled a 6 incher outta my tire this afternoon. She only has 436 miles, but looks like she already needs a new rubber

The factory PZeros are not runflats. I hope the OP bought runflats, or we're having a blowout in 5...4...3...2...

Hi, I listen to the dealer when they say stupid things like, "since they have run flats, there's no spare in the trunk."
My bad.
All has been temporarilly dealt with tho, no blow outs yet.

My dealer told me the same thing (runflats).... He was explaining why I did not have a spare.... I then educated him on the car HE was selling me. Thank you Camaro5 & friends, lots of great info.

Highly unlikely a 6 inch nail will stand up and go in your tire.
I suspect vandalism. Had it happen to me.

Had no point, and required over ten minutes of the mechanic pulling at it to get it out. Half inch thick. Would love to see someone with the tallent to get that thing in there the way it was
