    Default Screw puncture / does a new tyre solve issue?

    Apologies I know nothing about tyres. Got a screw in my tyre. It was due to be replaced as tread low so a mobile tyre company fitted new tyre. Told them had nail in existing tyre beforehand. They changed tyre and said nail was too close to the wall to fix. Does that mean my car is fine to drive or could the nail have done any other damage?

    It will be fine. An object through the side of a tyre makes it unrepairable, whereas one through the tread area can often be fixed. The new tyre makes it perfectly fine.
