I've just been to the local tyre factor to have a 1 inch nail removed from my tyre.

Tyre : 6 week old bridgestone s03
Nail : Generic tack type.
Location : To close to the side wall to repair, in the bottom of a groove.

Luck: 100%. It went in at 60 - 70 degrees towards the top sidewall corner and didn't puncture the tyre!

Much relieved...

I know that ATS do puncture insurance with the tyres they sell as do certain tyre brands like Gislaved and Toyo.

They give you a percentage refund based on how much tread is on the tyre when it's damaged.

Hope this helps in future.
