Need Quick Advise!

So I have a screw in my tire, however I am NOT losing any air. I will post a picture below. What should I do?

1. Leave the screw in the tire
2. Take out the screw and patch the tire
3. Buy a new tire

Of course BMW told me to buy a new tire...

take the nail out and patch it... but just take note that the tire will be more susceptible to a blow out when put under high stress (when track driving for example). so if you track a lot, its better to change the tires completely. if its only for street driving than a patch would be just fine.

That will cost you maybe $20 for a patch. Just patch it.

Now tell me more about these pictures!?! (sorry to be nosy lol)

I believe you lose your speed rating when you patch a tire. Be careful if you plan on using this patched tire for a track day.

Thanks. brought it to a tire plus and they said since it's not leaking leaving the screw in the tire. I am going to have to get new tires soon anyway, so i guess i'll just wait till my tire does start losing air.
