Nail in sidewall of tire

Nail in the sidewall of tire

Nails, screws or any object that penetrates the tire causing air loss is unfortunate because it's not repairable. A tire patch will not fix the problem being that the sidewall is to thin and the patch will not lay flush. Take your thumb as seen in the picture and place it on the top edge. If your thumb touches the hole then it's a no go on fixing the tire. If it's past your thumb then the patch should have a flat enough surface to lay even on the inside surface of the tire.
