    Don't touch. Let the tyre technician remove and repair if needed.

    First screw for the year. Good karma. Start filling that jellybean jar. ;)

    Move away from the car. Screwed tyres can be dangerous.

    Call the road service guys immediately! Get them to swap out the tyre with the spacesaver spare. You won't want to dirty your hands.

    Pop over to the coffee shop and order a matcha tea with a zing of lemon peel and a sprig of parsley.

    Bring the car back to the dealership and tell them that they hadn't disclosed that the tyres were magnetic to and prone to attracting road debis.

    Thanks guys I'll leave it in and take it tomorrow. I was about to pull it out then thought I'd better stop and check.

    @kierank and @Scott No Mates behave yourselves! The new year is barely in! :p

    Indeed.
    If there is a small imperfection like this, PC Members must not get it fixed. Just buy a new car instead.

    You need to take off and nuke it from orbit. It’s the only way to be sure

    Thought you had switched sides. Was going to say just sit back and relax.

    If you intend on driving anywhere first,spray it first with some detergent mixed with cold water , if there is any sort of leak it will start to bubble, also check the air pressure.
    If its to low , you will need to get some air into it before you drive to a tyre repair shop, as really low air pressure on bitumen and driving at over 30-40 kph can cook a tyre from the inside which makes is unrepairable if driven to far.
    As long as you can keep good air pressure in the tyre , no other damage shound occur.

    Air pressure was slightly less but probably been like that for awhile. No air bubbles when I poured soapy water. Should be ok for the shop to sort out in the morning.

    When I had the same problem the tyre person simply removed the screw then fitted an inner tube. (Original tyre was tubeless.) Quick and inexpensive.

    Nice tread.

    Probably many, in a "Happy New Year" sense, would be pleased that you didn't suggest the Auger Solution...
