You'll need:- Car jack- Lug wrench (or socket) - Pliers- Knife or Knips- Patch kit
Take the wheel off. I jacked it up, removed the wheel.Then I used a pair of pliers to pull the nail out.
Ream the hole a few times with the reaming tool. Don't go crazy with the reamer, you can make the hole to big for the plug to fit in.
Insert the plug in to the plug tool, so the plug is centered.Then cover the plug and tip of the tool with rubber cement.

Pull the plug tool out. Cut the remaining plug off. Let it dry and pump the tire back up. Your done.
