How do you remove a nail from your car tyre?
Remove the nailhead by pulling it out with a pair of pliers. Pry the nailheads out of the rubber. If this is too difficult, you can use a tire iron to hammer out the nail. The tire iron should work to remove the nail and bend it into a position that will not puncture your tire again.
How do you remove a nail from your car tyre without any tools?
If both tire irons and pliers are not available, try the following.
First, use a piece of wood to hammer the nail into a straight position that will not puncture your tire again.
Next, tie a rope around the nail and tie it to something sturdy like your car bumper. Start walking in one direction with the rope attached to your bumper. This should pull out the nail without penetrating your rubber again. If this technique does not work, try using both feet to walk in opposite directions while pulling on the rope with both hands.

What are some of the benefits of using self-heating auto tire repair kits?
Self-heating auto tire repair kits work by allowing the heat from the sun to warm up a compound that melts and cracks open holes in the rubber. This allows for quick and easy repairs on your tires. Self-heating auto tire repair kits also work well in cold climates where it is difficult to get out and manually repair tires. Self-heating auto tire repair kits are also cheaper than other types of auto repairs because they do not require special tools or experience.
