Falken RT660 with puncture

While inspecting my set of Falken RT660s (235/45-17) I found one with a puncture. Pulled out a 7/8th inch long x 1/16th thick wire or nail. It was located in the center rib.

Going to take it to a tire shop and hopefully they will install a patch. Not going to install a plug which I would do on a street tire. Never had anything like that on my autocross tires and I have been doing this for over 30 years!

Would it be safe to use after that? The tires have 11 events on them.

I’ve patched my autox tires twice, one being 660’s, never had an issue that I’m aware of.
