Another flat tire

 
Hi,
 
In the 25+ years of driving I never had more than one flat tire until I moved to Lantana.......for which I have had to have tires plugged at least 6 times and bought two replacements tires over the past three years. I thought I was finally done since our neighborhood (Heritage) is about built out but no....got another flat today which required a new tire.
This time there was a large metal construction staple and I'm sure it is from the new house under construction at the end of the street. Fortunately the plugs were done free by Discount Tire in the past but today's staple holes could not be plugged and thus I ended up buying $190 worth of tire repair today.
 
For More Details:-

Thanks!

    If it’s flat then they recommend adding air

    I have those new Michelin X Wheel tires and I can't figure out how to check the air pressure! Can they do that for free?

    That’s simple. You just run them into the curb as hard as possible, determine air pressure by how hard it hits. If something breaks, not enough pressure
