Advice: Double puncture this AM is tire toast?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Advice: Double puncture this AM is tire toast?

Ran over a nail and git a double puncture this AM. It was a mile from the house and my CO2 didnt want to cooperate, so on with the cleat covers and the walk of shame. This tire has about 1,000 miles on it. Hate to replace it but the exit near the bead worries me. Any suggestions and thanks

Doesn't look that bad to me. I've ridden (and continue to ride) much worse.

I would keep riding it if its not a worn out tire. The hole is small enough that you shouldnt have to worry about a tube bulging through or anything.

Maybe some thin rubber glue over it just to make sure nothing enters. Doesn't look all that bad

I'd ride it too. Then just replace at early signs of wear.

Thanks all. It looked like a finishing nail so from the outside of the tire you really cant see the punctures. Replaced the inner tube and it looks like Im all set From the pictures, wifey thinks I need a manicure...

I had the exact same thing happen to me last night, but the tube appears to have burst through the hole. I was thinking of getting a tire boot and continuing to use it (I have a large patch just sitting there between the tube and the tire right now but I really don't want to have a blowout while bombing down a hill). I have about 1,000 miles on mine, so I figure it's at least 33% worn out. I shelled out the $29 for a new michelin pro3 and will swap it out when it gets here. I was going to take this opportunity to switch to GP4000S but ribble was out of stock and they're at least $50 everywhere else I found them.

Mine does look a little more chewed up than yours and a little bit larger too.

Oh well!

I'd glue it and put it on the rear if it isn't already.
