    Hi, My driver side rear tire was punctured by a large nail, and I had it patched. I've noticed that it has continued to leak, but very slowly. Will this get worse over time, and I should just get a new tire now? I only have 5K miles on these wheels. It's kind of a pain to go to get my tires pumped more frequently.

    Just get the patch redone correctly. America's Tire will do it for FREE. They've done all the tires on our family's vehicles for 15+ years.

    Have it re-done. I just had one of mine patched last Saturday at Americas Tire.
