Patchable?

Hey guys, I let my gf drive my car, and she got me a gift in my tire lol. I'm taking it down tomorrow, but it is killing me and I'd like to know what your guys' thoughts are. Is this patchable?

Don’t even try. Had a similar nail in the tire of my TrailblazerSS.
20 inch wheels. Yep the plug did not hold and let go on a road at speed.
Just sayin.
That spot is a bad spot due to a lot of flex in the tire.

Damn, I was afraid of that. I'll take it in anyways for shits and giggles. A pair will set me back almost $800, so I'll try anything, hah.

Unfortunately, I didn't buy that. They wanted $176 a tire for that warranty. I went through discount tire, tire rack offers two year warranty for free I believe. Maybe I should order a new set from there

Road Hazard warranty can save your bacon (wallet) in the first year or two as most are prorated over time.

You guys were right,they wont patch it. I've always been told to replace tires in pairs at the minimum. What do you guys think, I'm a bar in a half away from yellow on my tread gauge. Would I be ok with just replacing one of the tires? They did offer a prorate of $180 back, so brings it to around $200, but its $670 for a pair.

They pulled a little tiny screw out, a tex screw, and the hole in the tire is big enough to slide a sharpy through it. Could they have done that because they wanted me to buy a new tire, or am I just being paranoid?

paranoid; the size of the hole matters 0, its 100% the location of the puncture.
