Thanks Gadgetjq! I am fairly new to AZ (third year) as well as being new to this forum.
The wheels had the typical peeling/flaking clear coat and if course curb rash do to the low pro tires. I just couldn't put new tires on those wheels. Of course, may get different wheels later, but we will see. I was considering having them refinished, but maybe selling them is not a bad idea to mitigate some of the unexpected cost of the tires!
As I understand it, a patch/plug combination is the real way to successfully repair the puncture per the TIA.
This one was located on the shoulder and is not considered reparable by a conscientious shop.
I look forward to learning a lot here!
