    Sounds like a corporate cover-your-assery answer.
    If it was done at a major tire shop, like America's Tire they no doubt used a mushroom plug. And removed the tire to patch it, in which case the repair would last the life of the tire.
    But since you don't know how they repaired it and that answer, I think you made the right decision to replace the tire.

    I seriously doubt major tire sellers use rope plugs.
    The corner gas station/repair shop... maybe.

    I've rope-plugged tires. Never an issue.

    There are far brighter minds on this site than mine, but here's my 2 cents. Keep the receipt of new tires in the glove box and remember to rotate your tires. Not particularly helpful with the nail near the sidewall, but you may not have realized you bought a warranty on the tire. Most importantly, it makes your tire rotations cheaper (or free) depending where you bought the tires.

    Oh i've done it plenty of times without issue. But if I don't do it myself I don't trust those as much. I've replaced too many of them.

    No.
