As you may or may not know, four (4) of us had screws in our tires in Arizona.
I “plugged” mine in the Hyatt garage with the help of Brian and Chris and my trusty plug kit.

Today I took my NFGT to Ian and Joe at Milliken for post rally oil change /filter and full checkup before winter in Michigan,

I showed Joe the location of my tire plug in right rear tire so he knew.
Within 20 seconds he alerted me… he found screw number two (2) in right rear tire!!
Naturally, he will check all four tires once it is on the lift for maintenance.

You guys may want to do a check of your tires also.

Oh shit! No, I thought only Chip got one o_O ... I'll go check mine. No apparently slow leaks (yet).

I'm not the only one who got screwed. Andy got screwed twice but that's understandable because he's better looking than me.

I plugged my rear flat on my 2005 in the Hyatt garage. Stress tested it the next day at Apex, then drove 1100 miles home without a problem. Life is good....

Looks like it came to a fork in the road.
