Atleast they attempt to seal the water go of the steel belts,....

My kit uses the brown corded Camel push-in plugs,.....

They said it was a nail, but not repairable because on the sidewall....So I thought it was a nail into the flange
When I came back home, I took a look and saw the nail....is this really not repairable (nail is visible on the right side of the tire)?
