hate to waste this Michelin tire can this be plunged?, no only kidding ran across this range rover tire last week the car came in with noise/vibration complaint. I wanted to share with all of you, this tire still had air in it.

I have seen cars come into my shop with plugs in the sidewall. Which I promptly recommend they replace the tire.

Most do, some don't.

My personal vehicles, any sidewall damage, gets replaced. Any damage that close to the sidewall, gets replaced. Your 2 for one special, wouldn't even be considered to be saved.

And the tread on that tire is shot.

besides the foreign object, there is zero tread on that tire and is unsafe for the street.
